Ring Mountain Project

Ring Mountain Grassland Restoration Project

Marin-County-Parks-logo-WideJoin us for our monthly drop-in volunteer workday as we focus on restoring the grasslands of Ring Mountain! Ring Mountain is home to numerous rare and endangered plants, but this habitat is being threatened by invasive species. Volunteer work may include invasive species removal, seed collecting, planting native plants, or other restoration activities. Educational components are included as we discuss the plants and animals that inhabit this unique place and explain how volunteer activities are having a positive impact.

Drop-in days are held on the last Saturday of every month (except November and December); Hours usually are 10 AM to 1PM. Volunteer work is mildly strenuous and involves bending, pulling, and kneeling, and usually requires a short hike to the site. Dress in layers, you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring water. Please bring gloves if you have them. Snacks and extra water will be provided. RSVP's are appreciated but not required.

Meet at the top of Taylor Road in Tiburon.  From Hwy 101 in Corte Madera, take exit 449A for Tamalpais Dr east.  Go straight onto San Clemente, which merges into Paradise Dr after 0.4 mile.  Follow Paradise Dr. approximately 1.7 miles, turn right onto Taylor Rd, and follow to end.  Carpooling is encouraged.
