DiRT Day: Habitat Restoration at Marsh Creek 4 & 6

This event has expired and is here for your reference.

202215Jan

Enjoy the beauty of Mount Diablo’s foothills as we help native bunchgrasses, shrubs, and woody plantings on a volcanic dome and a riparian meadow. We planted and protected 1,000 native plants and trees in 2021! Please join us to take care of the plantings at our restoration sites on Marsh Creek 4 & 6. Tasks include mulching and weeding. If we go up to Marsh Creek 6, there’s a short, steep walk up a paved road.

Participants will be notified in the event of cancellation due to extreme weather conditions. An AQI of 150 or above automatically cancels the workday. Restrooms are not available.

***Our Policy on Volunteers under the age of 18

As we continue to strive to bridge the gap between youth and nature, we encourage families and youth groups to participate in our stewardship workdays. We have outlined our policy on volunteers under the age of 18 in order to create the best environment for everyone involved. Please note, our stewardship workdays are not drop-off programs.

Young volunteers under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. In addition, they should meet one of the following requirements before participating in our stewardship workdays:

Be accompanied by their adult guardian/parent/chaperone throughout the duration of the workday

Be a part of a recognized organization (such as a school group, youth group, etc.) with their authorized chaperone/teacher/leader present at the workday

If you have any questions about our policy, you can reach our Diablo Restoration Team leader, Haley Sutton, at hsutton@savemountdiablo.org.
