Each year, SPAWN volunteers contribute hundreds of hours towards restoring streamside habitat in our community throughout the Lagunitas Creek Watershed. Volunteers (including students, biologists, and citizens from across the Bay Area) work to plant native trees and understory plants homegrown in our Native Plant Nursery, and remove non-native invasive species.
Over the years, we have focused restoration efforts at Roy's Pools (formerly Roy's Dam) to re-create riparian habitat so as to provide shade and shelter for juvenile salmonids in the pools. In 2005, our efforts greatly expanded to encompass restoring vegetation along hundreds-of-feet of riparian habitat upstream of Roy's Pools on the San Geronimo Creek. We also launched our community-based native plant nursery program which will serve to grow thousands of native plants to support local restoration programs and provide plants to landowners living along stream corridors in the San Geronimo Valley.
In 2006 we launched our Native Plant Nursery which is now run with the energy and passion of local community members. Mel Wright, 35-year resident of Woodacre, currently manages our Nursery.
