Citizen Science Volunteer Opportunity 01/11/2020

January 11 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Volunteers will walk about 1/2 mile on flat ground to the northern section of the ranch where a recent hydrologic restoration project was completed.  Participants will help spread native seed and straw at soil fill site.

This may include walking on rough surfaces, bending and some lifting.  Rain Boots are recommended.

If you are allergic to straw or molds this may not be for you. 

Space is not limited; the more the merrier!

RSVP for this Citizen Science event to Jasmine Westbrook by emailing jasmine@solanolandtrust.org .

(3) Tools are provided.

WHAT TO BRING: (1) A backpack with plenty of water and snacks. (2) Sturdy work gloves. (3) Eye protection (e.g., sunglasses). (4) Boots or sturdy closed-toe shoes with tread for rough, steep, and slippery terrain. (5) Long, sturdy pants and layered clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
