Join TLC volunteers for this family friendly volunteer day!

Stilt grass growths thick and tall, covering everything near it, including other grasses, baby trees (saplings), and native ground cover. It’s easy to feel like there is just too much of it, and give up, but we are not going to let that happen! Especially because it’s so easy to pull up!

Instead, a great, big group of volunteers (families with kids welcome!) will gather on September 9th to pull up as much stilt grass around Walnut Grove Loop as we can. Over the last two years, volunteers have cleared away hundreds of invasive privet, multiflora and olive plants, making room for natives – and stilt grass. Now we need to take the next step and protect those native species.

This is a volunteer event and preregistration is required. If you have not made an account on our Volunteer Hub website, you will be asked to do so before you can register.



Current Mask Policy: TLC seeks to build a supportive, mask-friendly environment in all collaborations with staff and the public. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated, or if that makes you feel most comfortable. We will have masks available if you would like to wear one during an event. We also encourage those eligible to be vaccinated to get their Covid-19 vaccine and booster shot. If you are experiencing any Covid-related symptoms, please stay home and attend a program another day. Our top priority is to create a safe environment for our community.
