Habitat Restoration Crew (Mission Trails Regional Park)

Habitat Restoration Crew
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM (4 hours), Saturday, February 08, 2014
[Meet by flag poles in parking lot in front of Visitors Center]

Would you like to get your exercise for the day AND help make a difference for your park's natural habitat at the same time? Then come on out and lend a hand on the Park's monthly Habitat Restoration Crew! Assist rangers with exotic plant eradication, habitat protection, and re-vegetation projects.

When & Where to meet:

Come join me and other Humanity On Call (HOC) partners by the flag poles in front of the Visitor Center (weather permitting) at 8 a.m. and help out until approximately 12 noon (at the latest).

What to bring:

If you have your own work gloves, please bring them along and be sure to wear long pants and sturdy, closed-toe shoes. A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are also recommended on sunny days. Cold water, Gatorade and snacks will be provided, but you may want to bring along a water bottle to refill.

Note: Crew will be cancelled during extreme heat or rainy conditions.
For more information, contact Ranger Heidi at[masked]-3279.

Park History:

Mission Trails Regional Park encompasses nearly 5,800 acres of both natural and developed recreational acres. Its rugged hills, valleys and open areas represent a San Diego prior to the landing of Cabrillo in San Diego Bay in 1542.

Started in 1974, Mission Trails Regional Park has become one of the largest urban parks in the United States. Originally used by the Kumeyaay, the park is the site of the Old Mission Dam, built to store water for the Mission San Diego de Alcala.

With over 40 miles of trails, boating on Lake Murray, camping at Kumeyaay Lake, numerous informative hikes, and a state-of-the-art Visitor & Interpretive Center, Mission Trails Regional Park has something to offer everyone.

    I just met the overall park organizer who is handing out maps - we're going to Wingspan Dr at Talisman Court.
