VISTA — The San Diego Audubon Society will host a volunteer restoration event at the Anstine-Audubon Nature Preserve in Vista from 9 a.m. to noon April 25. Help is needed to restore this 11-acre coastal preserve, a suburban refuge for over 200 species of plants and animals. Volunteers will remove invasive plants and brush around the restoration area and plant cuttings. They will also be maintaining the loop trail by laying down a new layer of mulch. This work event will be held in recognition of TogetherGreen Volunteer Days, an alliance between Toyota and the Audubon Society, working nationwide to engage more people in volunteering for conservation.
Volunteers are asked to work in long pants and boots or sturdy shoes and wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. The Audubon Society will provide work gloves, tools, snacks and water.
Volunteers can RSVP with Shannon Dougherty at [email protected] or by calling (619) 682-7210. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver before the event.
The Anstine-Audubon nature preserve is located at 2437 Hutchison Street.
