SPAWN is involved in collaborative projects all over San Geronimo Valley from privately owned land to Marin County Open Space trails to the San Geronimo Golf Course. Listed below are the current work-party dates that SPAWN would love to have you participate in. If you and your party would like to RSVP to a particular date OR a particular project please contact Preston Brown, Watershed Biologist at firstname.lastname@example.org, Please RSVP by the Tuesday prior to posted events so that emails with confirmed times and meeting locations can be sent.
Seed Collection Hikes are a great way to learn about California native plants and the important role they play in our restoration events. These activities are generally for all ages but feel free to ask any questions pertaining to party members physical capabilities. All seed that is collected is then propagated in our native plant nursery by our amazing volunteer team. Once these seeds develop into seedlings and plants we utilize them within the Lagunitas Creek watershed to restore vital habitat. Meeting places vary but the events meet at 10 am and generally run to around 2pm.
Work Parties are a fun way to get involved in the labor needed to restore habitat vital to species like the endangered Coho salmon. These activities are at variable sites within the Lagunitas Creek watershed that can require some small adaptations so we encourage participants interested to RSVP and ask as many questions as you need. Just as with the seed hikes meeting places vary but the events meet at 10 am and generally run to around 2pm.
All parties who RSVP will receive a confirmation email upon us receiving the RSVP and then an additional email with detailed information on solidified plans for the event on the Wednesday prior to the event. We can't wait to work with you and share our passion and knowledge about conservation so hope to see you soon!
