Cypress Lane Wetlands, Sep2

In 2014 we restarted the Cypress Lane Wetlands stewardship program, which was run so successfully for several years by Jim McKissock and his volunteers. Now Noixium Berrios, our new Environmental Educator and Naturalist has taken over the project with a slightly different focus.

Restoration and enhancement of the area is, of course, the main focus. But in preparation for the upcoming school year (2014-2015) some aquatic biology study areas will be set up. Now local schools will have an Aquatic Biology Lab - and that will be great!

Volunteers are welcome to join the restoration workdays every Tuesday from 9:00am-12:00pm (Noixium will be at the site from 8:30am until 1:30pm) at the Cypress Lane Wetlands in Brisbane's Crocker Industrial Park. Meet at the site. Bring boots if you have them! Tools and snacks will be provided.

For more information, contact Noixium at 415-756-4223 or Ken at 415-467-6631 - or email sanbruno@mountainwatch.org.
