Removing Invasives in Tennessee Valley

When: Wednesdays, 10 am–2:30 pm

Where: Marin-locations vary. View the IPP workday schedule (PDF) for details.

Hiking with a mission! Invasive Plant Patrol volunteers join ranger led hikes, from the Marin Headlands to Bolinas Ridge, to find and remove localized infestations of invasive weeds before they get out of control—an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This program is great for those that love to hike and are interested in plant identification, both native and non-native. Hikes are approximately 4.5 hours.
