Dune Restoration

Join Parks and Greater Farallones in restoring the unique ecosystem on Kent Island in Bolinas Lagoon! You’ll learn the value of protecting this little oasis, and how to identify and remove the invasive species that threaten it. Participation requires a short rowboat ride to the island. Volunteer work is mildly strenuous and involves bending, pulling, and kneeling, and usually requires a short hike to the site.

It is possible for volunteers as young as 5 years old to join if teamed with a parent or guardian. Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Rubber boots strongly recommended, although not required. Snacks and extra water will be provided but bring a lunch. In the event of heavy rain and/or high winds call (415) 473-3778 to find out about event status. In the event of cancellation, program will be rescheduled.
RSVP required; space is limited.

Questions or to RSVP Contact Volunteer Coordinator Greg Reza at GReza@marincounty.org or (415) 473-3778.
