Volunteers at Work

Invasive Plant Patrol volunteers find new invasions of exotics and remove localized infestations before they get out of control. This program is great for those that love to hike in the park and want to get to know new trail systems. You'll learn to identify plants, both native and invasive while enjoying scenic landscapes. Hikes last approximately 4 hours. Locations vary from the Marin Headlands to Bolinas Ridge.

Volunteer programs take place on Wednesdays from 10 am-2:30 pm.
