Destination Volunteering: Plant Native Seedlings in Hayward/Union City

After the project, optional lunch/social in Burlingame at Magda Luna.

*Note: the exact meeting location will be revealed to us a week prior to the event

Here is information from their website:

Help Save the Bay reach their goal of planting 30,000 native seedlings this winter! Wetlands provide essential habitat to many species of plants and animals, including acting as a nursery for many fish. The fish, in turn, provide food to the magnificent bald eagle and other more abundant birds of the Bay.

No experience necessary. Gloves, tools and instruction provided. Each event is led by Save The Bay staff certified in CPR and Wilderness First Aid and all site projects have been planned to ensure safety.

If there is heavy rain, the event will be cancelled.

What to bring and wear
Expect to get dirty! Be prepared to be outdoors for the duration of the project. Dress in layers, bring a hat and rain jacket (if necessary), and wear close-toed shoes to protect your feet. Long pants are recommended, but not required. Unless of course it's sunny!  Then bring wide brim hats and sunscreen.  Please also bring your own full refillable water bottle and help us cut down on plastic waste. Take precautions in wet weather with valuable items like binoculars and cameras. Our programs happen at public parks so please do not leave any valuables in your car. You are welcome to store your items in our trucks at the site.

Provided
Save The Bay provides all restoration tools, gloves and equipment. Our trained filed staff delivers quality educational instruction with maps, nature guides and binoculars. We provide water and granola bars but expect each participant to arrive with a full refillable water bottle to help us cut down on plastic waste. Participants must follow all safety directions and use tools appropriately. Your Save The Bay leader is certified in wilderness first aid and CPR.  All sites have been scouted to insure there are no hazards or unsafe conditions.  Save The Bay leaders carry a first aid kit and cell phone in case of emergency.
