Habitat Restoration Team

We are a volunteer group working to restore native habitat in the parks and protected lands in Santa Cruz County. Our program provides an opportunity for people to learn about the natural systems that surround them while helping to restore special and wild places. No prior work experience is necessary, just show up at the park. We welcome individual volunteers from 8 to 80 years, as well as special group projects. Wear comfortable layered clothing, bring something to drink, and lots of enthusiasm! We work rain or shine, but if things get particularly unpleasant, we call it a day. Tools provided; bring gloves.

FUTURE PROJECTS: Mark your calendars!


FUTURE PROJECTS: Summer time is here, and volunteer restoration work slows down a little. I will try to have a couple of projects during the summer months, but have not set any further dates. I will post dates to our web site, now and then, or give me a call or email.
Have a wonderful summer. ~Linda
