Come join us for a morning outdoors! Lend a hand with our post-fire restoration efforts, re-vegetating land after the Old Fire of June 2016. Help us control invasive plant species, care for the plants that are starting to regrow, and learn about the unique native annuals we are working to protect here in the Santa Monica Mountains!
This event is fun for kids and families! Volunteers under the age of 16 must bring the Parental Consent Form, which can be found on our website.

Join Mountains Restoration Trust to preserve and protect the streams and creeks of the Malibu Creek Watershed. The invasive, non-native crayfish are harmful to the ecosystem of the Santa Monica Mountains. They prey on native species, reduce water quality, and cause problems with creek bed erosion. We need your help in trapping and removing the crayfish as well as picking up trash along the stream.
Great Fun for Kids and Families! Volunteers 18 years or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring this form with a parent or guardian’s signature if the parent or guardian is not attending.
