NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT --
Saturday, October 20
9 AM – 1 PM
Throughout Santa Clara Valley non-native plant species are forcing out native plants, in some cases drastically altering local ecosystems. Santa Clara County Parks is making a concerted effort to remove these invasive plants, and a key element of the plan is plain and simple: to pull or dig up of these plants before they continue to propagate. Volunteer crews are crucial to this labor intensive task.
Volunteers will remove thistle, broom and other non-native plants surrounding at Uvas Canyon Park. Uvas Canyon County Park is located at the end of Croy Road in Uvas Canyon; the park address is 8515 Croy Rd. Morgan Hill. Volunteers meet at the park office at 9 AM.
No special skills are required. Please wear long pants and sturdy shoes, and bring a long sleeved shirt and sunscreen. Tools and work gloves are provided; please bring your own water bottle (we can refill your bottle but to eliminate waste we no longer provide bottled water).
Volunteers age 14-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the event. Volunteers age 16-17 may participate without parent/guardian supervision but only if they present a completed volunteer application including a parent or guardian's signature. Application forms as available at the event but the parent or guardian must be present to sign.
