Sand Dune Habitat Restoration

Native plants and animals need native habitats to thrive! Join in to remove some of the more problematic species to ensure the welfare of species native to the Bay Area.

In 2020, a beautiful sand dune habitat was created at Encinal Beach with unique California native plants.
We need the help of weed warriors & good samaritans to pull out invasive weeds from the planting area to prevent them from taking over. Removing the invasive weeds encourages growth of the native plant species and benefits local wildlife.

Students can earn community service hours. Heavy rain cancels.
