C4SM Broom Bash Friday Series

July 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Call for Broom Bash volunteers!  Want to eradicate invasive French Broom, one of the most widespread and invasive wildland pest plants in California?  Join Mayor Bruce Delgado and other volunteers for a “Broom Bash” to clear French Broom from Fort Ord’s East Garrison, adjacent areas, and the Fort Ord National Monument.

Each Bash will focus on broom eradication in a particular location. Volunteer “weed warriors” armed with “weed wrenches” will uproot broom plants and strive for 100% eradication. Treated areas will be later planted with local wildflowers and shrubs. Treated areas will also be monitored to prevent brooms from reestablishing.

Prior registration is needed.  Pre-register 4 days in advance by contacting John Mott at sustainableeastgarrison@gmail.com.
Bring your gloves, water, and sunscreen.

For more information, contact John Mott: (831) 324-0277 or sustainableeastgarrison@gmail.com

French Broom (Genista monspessulana) is a nasty, tenacious, invasive plant. Both the plant and seeds are toxic to animals and other plant life, even native plants.  The plants crowd out native plants thereby reducing essential food and shelter for our native birds, insects, and wildlife.
