CANCELLED - Native Planting Volunteer Event Peter Strauss Ranch


Join Community Nature Connection and the National Park Service to restore habitat by planting native plants adjacent to a frequently-used public trail.

Our restoration is focused on ash-oak woodland, coastal sage scrub, and wetland communities which have been diminished through the years from urban development and human-related disturbances. These native communities are critical for supporting wildlife and plants that future generations can enjoy as the restoration matures over time.

In the future, birdwatchers will be able to see a greater diversity of bird species, especially in the enhanced woodland area. Some of the species you will plant include sages, buckwheat, oak trees, ash trees, and mulefat shrubs. Our goal is to plant at least 200 plants!
