The Fantastic Fountain Thistle Recovery Work Party

The Fantastic Fountain Thistle Recovery Work Party—Saturday, October 23, 2010, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.: Join Ken Himes and Jake Sigg of the Santa Clara Valley and Yerba Buena Chapters of the California Native Plant Society for some fun in the mud: a restoration work party for the Fountain Thistle at the intersection of Highways 92 & 280 in San Mateo County. We’ll remove invasive pampas grass and Australian tea tree along a serpentine seep so the Fountain Thistle has a chance to survive. The work party earns you a point towards the Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year $1,000 grand prize. After several years, the rewards of our work are clearly visible: come help us finish the job. Your sturdy boots with good traction will be necessary; gloves and tools will be provided. Meet at the intersection of Highway 92 West and I-280 North. RSVP required: e-mail Jake Sigg (jakesigg[at]earthlink[dot]net).
