Join Pie Ranch and Amah Mutsun Land Trust to remove eucalyptus sprouts and other invasive species from Cascade Creek on Año Nuevo Point!

Riparian (streamside) restoration is now more important than ever. Unfortunately, the riparian zone of Cascade Creek continues to be affected by the spread of invasive plant species, causing loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. With your help, we can work towards enhancing the ecosystem and increasing populations of native plants. In fact, healthy riparian ecosystems promote ecological and climate resilience both within and beyond riparian zones, promoting the sequestration of carbon and accrual of nitrogen in soil, as well as buffering organisms against extreme temperatures.

Spend time outdoors, meet new people, learn about invasive plants and creek habitats, and help us to care for the ancestral lands of the Quiroste Tribe. This event will also be a great opportunity to learn about how Indigenous perspectives and approaches to land stewardship are being revitalized in open spaces today.
