Join EDI and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) this Saturday, December 16, starting with a hike to learn about the habitat, then lending a hand to help with a current restoration project. In partnership with the Southern California Wetlands Recovery Program and the California Coastal Conservancy, EDI and FWS are removing weeds and planting native species along the Sweetwater River. San Diego National Wildlife Refuge manager Jill Terp will walk you through the project area, share information about the creatures and habitats that will benefit, then we’ll rake (de-thatch) to remove dry non-native grasses from some of the planting areas. Wear a hat, suncreen and long pants. Bring a water bottle and a smile. Water, drinks, and snacks will be provided. RSVPs most helpful!
From Rancho San Diego, travel south on Campo Road (SR-94), turn west on Millar Ranch Road, go .2 mile south on from to gate on right. Drive in. You will be directed to parking.
