Antioch Dunes Planting Party

Saturday, March 7th, 9:00am-1:30pm: Join Wild Equity and the folks at Antioch Dunes Wildlife Refuge Sardis Unit for this chance to reinvigorate endangered wildlife populations! We’ll be meeting up at the refuge to plant seedlings of endangered Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose and Contra Costa Wallflower — and of Naked‐stemmed Buckwheat, the host plant of the endangered Lange’s Metalmark Butterfly.

This is an opportunity to visit a unique area normally closed to the public. This dune system is an extremely rare and imperiled habitat, and we need your help implementing its restoration. We look forward to seeing you there, and working alongside you!

Meet at the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge Sardis Unit at 1551 Wilbur Avenue in Antioch, CA 94509. Wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and layered clothing. Bring raingear (you never know), lunch and water, a sunhat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and knee pads if you like to use them. Tools, gloves and snacks will be provided.

RSVP on this page — or check us out on Meetup!
