May Stewardship Saturday

Saturday, May 18, 2019, 4:00 PM

Join the National Park Service (NPS) for a free, Ranger-led land stewardship program Saturday, May 18th at the Martinez, California site.  The program begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Strentzel Creek meadow area of Mt. Wanda and will end around noon. This area recently came under NPS management and is currently only open to visitation with an NPS chaperone. The stewardship project will entail removing invasive plant species from the sensitive creek and surrounding meadow. All training and tools required for this project will be provided. RAIN WILL CANCEL THIS EVENT! Stewardship Saturdays, conceived and run by the park’s Natural Resources Program, is a series of hands-on community stewardship projects and educational activities that will typically be held on the fourth Saturday of each month at John Muir NHS.  Please note that activities may include bending, kneeling, and walking on slopes and uneven terrain. In addition, the closest restrooms will be one mile away, at the John Muir NHS Visitor Center – there will not be restrooms at the project site. Projects are not suitable for children under the age of 12. Minors will need a volunteer service agreement signed by a parent/guardian, and those under the age of 15 must have a parent/guardian present throughout projects. Parking will be available at 5018 Alhambra Valley Road, Martinez, California 94553. For more information please call  Sierra Mathias at (925) 228-8860 ext. 6429. PLEASE NOTE: Rain will cancel this event!
