Mt. Tamalpais Habitat Restoration and Guided Nature Hike
May 13 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pmFree
Saturday, May 13th 9:00am – 12:00pm
Lake Lagunitas Parking Lot/Pine Point
You know what they say: April showers bring May… habitat restoration events? We certainly agree! This May, join us on the watershed for a late-season broom pull at Pine Point. We will be pulling rain or shine, so please come prepared with the following:
– Layers, long pants, and athletic shoes (preferably with ankle support, as our site is off-trail and sloped);
– A refillable water bottle;
– And a positive attitude! We will cover any other necessary supplies like weed pullers, gloves, and snacks/water.
We provide volunteers with free parking passes.
Volunteers will be meeting at the Lake Lagunitas Parking Lot (link here) between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. At 9:00 sharp, we will begin our safety orientation before walking to the pull site for some spring broom busting! RSVP encouraged but not required; family-friendly with parental supervision for ages 8+. Volunteers 16 years or older are welcome to join us with signed permission slips. For more information and to see our latest offerings, please visit www.marinwater.org/volunteer.
After the Habitat Restoration, volunteers are welcome to join for a guided Forest Health tour of Lake Lagunitas.

Join our GrizzlyCorps fellow and our science communication intern on a guided nature walk around Lake Lagunitas. Let’s celebrate the changing season by looking for signs of new life. We will be visiting the spillway, footbridges, and Pilot Knob to see the different treatments implemented by Marin Water staff to improve and increase the resiliency of our forests’ health.
Meeting location is Lake Lagunitas parking lot at 1pm sharp! Parking passes are NOT provided, please purchase one across from the Sky Oaks Ranger Station. Registration is not required but is encouraged. Hiking up Pilot Knob trail is moderately strenuous with some elevational gain.
