Volunteer Event – Carr Lake Weed Warriors Needed
August 3 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
You can be part of history at our Carr Lake site in Salinas, August 3rd from 8:00 – 11:00 AM! As we plan a new park in the heart of the city, we are working with CSUMB’s Return of the Natives on growing a native plant garden. The garden serves as a demonstration site for what will be possible when our property is fully restored. Students and community members who work on the garden are all making history as they bring back these native plants to Carr Lake: White Yarrow, Mugwort, California Poppy, Santa Barbara Sedge, Creeping Wild Rye, Coast Live Oak and Valley Oak. You can be part of this amazing story too!
After all the spring rains, the garden is thriving – and so are the weeds. We need several volunteers to help us maintain the garden, remove vegetation from the walkways, pick up litter and apply mulch. Gloves and snacks will be provided.
Please fill out the form below. We will contact you with further details on carpooling opportunities and meeting location.
