MRT is hosting a weekend of activities related to safety and rural lifestyles. Learn about wildfires and how native plant landscaping can protect your home. Native Plants on sale with expert advice on best choices for specific landscapes and planting tips. Take home literature and resources will also be available. Pet owners are also invited to bring their dogs to the Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic. The one-on-one training process protects dogs from snake bites by ensuring they understand the sight, smell and sound of a rattlesnake. The 3-day event, March 23 – 25, 2018, 8 am to 5pm, is at the scenic 22-acre historic Golden Heart Ranch. Pre-registration and fee is required for the Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinic. To sign up or for more information go to www.mountainstrust.org. or call (818) 591-1701.
Come help us remove crayfish from your creeks and streams! Crayfish are a non-native species to California, and they’re considered invasive because they cause quite a bit of damage to the aquatic ecosystems. 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.
PARKING: You are free to park anywhere within reason. This is near a residential area, so please be respectful of the folks who live there!
