North Monterey County High School Native Planting

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Help restore vital wetland habitat for local endangered species by planting native California plants!

Public Planting Day – Saturday, Feb 17, from 10 am to 2 pm (rain or shine), at the North Monterey County Amphibian Enhancement Project site located at http://tinyurl.com/Native-Planting-Feb17

The Central Coast Wetlands Group and Coastal Conservation & Research are partnering with the Watershed Stewardship Program to host this event.  For more information or to RSVP, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/…/north-monterey-county-high…

Come help us plant 750 native California plants throughout a wetland restoration site located behind the North Monterey County High School! Together we will enhance habitat for three local and endangered amphibian species, the Santa Cruz Long Toed Salamander, the California Tiger Salamander, and the California Red Legged Frog. At the same time, this restoration site is a part of the Moro Cojo watershed, which then empties into Monterey Bay. The restoration of wetland habitat throughout this watershed will aid in the overall health of Monterey Bay, by sequestering carbon, urban, and agricultural runoff. Reducing the concentration of these pollutants throughout the watershed will also improve the region’s ability to support its once-historic anadromous salmonid populations.

You do not have any previous experience working with plants! We will provide gloves and tools for all volunteers and will also provide demos showing everyone how to properly plant these plants!

Bring with you: your water bottle, long sleeves, SPF, a sun hat and closed-toe shoes.

Snacks and extra water will be provided, along with all necessary tools and gloves!

Parking and Bathrooms will be located at North Monterey High School. From the parking lot signs will direct you to the check-in table.
