Volunteer Info: Habitat Restoration Team
We are a volunteer group working to restore native habitat in the parks and protected lands in Santa Cruz County and helping to remove harmful, non-native plants. Our program provides an opportunity for people to learn about the natural systems that surround them while helping to restore special and wild places. No prior work experience is necessary, just show up at the park. We welcome individual volunteers from 8 to 80 years, as well as special group projects. Wear comfortable layered clothing, bring something to drink, and lots of enthusiasm! We work rain or shine, but if things get particularly unpleasant, we call it a day. Tools provided; bring gloves.
