Saturday September 24, 2022: Presentation- Rebuilding Coastal Prairie

A free webinar presented by Grey Hayes, PhD

I will present for the Coastside Land Trust about California’s very endangered coastal prairie. Learn about what lives in this habitat and how to steward it. I’ll talk about ecological history and how that informs our approaches to management in the future. The event is free, but you have to register. Here’s their flier:


Most Saturdays:    Habitat Restoration Team – Santa Cruz County California Native Plant Society:

Volunteers help to steward natural areas that are particularly critical habitat for conservation. Oftentimes, the leader and participants share important information about habitat, so you learn good things on top of taking part in land management.

Workdays are scheduled usually on Saturdays from 10 a.m. through 1 p.m.

Volunteers are welcomed between the ages of 8 and 80. Wear comfortable layered clothing, bring water and your enthusiasm. Tools are provided.
