POSTPONED TO SATURDAY, JANUARY 5TH - Open Space Workday, Nature Walk and Lunchplants

Saturday, January 5th
Tiburon Peninsula Club
1600 Mar West St.
9am - 1pm

Due to the forecast of heavy rains this weekend, the Open Space Workday is rescheduled from December 1st to January 5th.

The first rains of the season mean we'll soon be seeing a flush of yellow French broom blossoms on local hillsides. Winter is the best time to remove this invasive plant, so on Saturday, January 5th, the Broom Busters of Old St. Hilary’s Open Space will host their biggest workday of the year from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will be rewarded with a good workout, a nature walk and a hearty lunch.

Participants of all ages are invited to meet in the parking lot of the Tiburon Peninsula Club (1600 Mar West St.) at 9am. Marin County Parks rangers will provide tools and direct the group in pulling broom on the open space behind the club. After a chili lunch, naturalist David Herlocker will lead a walk to point out unique features of the open space and how plants and animals benefit from habitat restoration.

The Broom Busters have been battling broom, bull thistle and other non-native plants since 1997, and they welcome new volunteers. Workdays are usually the first Saturday morning each month. The requirements are simple: “Come when you can; leave when you must.” No experience is needed.

To volunteer or to receive email announcements of future workdays, contact Faith Brown at or 435-5320.
