Creekside Park Restoration

Save the Bay has been living up to it’s name for over 50 years by battling to keep the area pristine and they’re asking for our help. The organization has been instrumental in many restoration and preservation endeavors — as well as being big proponents of the plastic bag ban — all of which have been made possible because of volunteers. So this weekend, consider bringing the whole family out to Creekside Marsh and make it a team effort to help rehabilitate the homes of our furry and feathered friends.

Come dressed in sturdy shoes and layers you don’t mind getting dirty (finally a purpose for those promo t-shirts taking up drawer space!) as the work is slightly taxing, consisting mostly of mulching, watering, and weeding. All of your bending and pulling will help keep native plants healthy and you’ll get some fresh air, a workout, and a sense of accomplishment out of it. Marin County Parks and Save The Bay staff will be on hand serving as resources and providing guidance. Visit both of their sites to learn about additional participation opportunities.
