Published by at 9:35 pm under Recent Posts

COME JOIN US SATURDAY.  Please PASS THIS ON TO FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS!!

PILKINGTON CREEK CLEANUP & HABITAT RESTORATION

WHEN:  September 11, October 2 & 23, 10am to 1 pm. Please join us for one or more of these dates!

WHERE: Meet near the whale sculpture outside the Museum of Natural History (located at 1305 E. Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz, 95060)

WHAT: Join our team of weed whackers to clear out invasive English Ivy and Mattress Wire Vine, an alien invader from New Zealand that’s smothering plants in Pilkington Creek that runs into Seabright Beach from the grounds of the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. After we clear out pesky weeds we will create a natural riparian habitat with California native plants.

DETAILS: Wear long sleeves and closed toed shoes. If you have gloves and tools, bring them. Otherwise  we will supply them. Bring a sack lunch and we’ll picnic after we work.  Under 18-year-olds need to come with a parent or adult guardian who can sign a volunteer release for them.

CONTACT: For more information, contact Nancy Lenz: nanlenz@cruzio.com or 831-426-5252.

This project is a collaboration between local community members, Friends  of Parks and Recreation, Seabright Neighborhood Association, City of Santa Cruz Parks Department, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. It is one of several in Santa Cruz County made possible by a grant from the Chuck Haugen Conservation Fund.  http://www.chuckhaugenconservationfund.org/
