Native plant restoration at Pigeon Point Light Station, Oct 23


By on Fri, October 15, 2010

Join us on Saturday October 23rd from 10AM - 1PM and help revitalize the Pigeon Point Light Station by removing iceplant, a non-native invasive plant species, from the grounds of this State Historic Park. No experience or skills are necessary! You will join both parks staff and dedicated long term volunteers who have been actively removing the iceplant from the grounds and replacing it with native plants.

Iceplant smothers native plants and reduces natural habitat. Native plants increase biodiversity by providing native wildlife with food and shelter. Some native plants are in bloom or seed all year, providing food for insects, birds and small animals. Native plants are also well adapted to mild winters and dry, foggy summers of the coast.

Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, 50 miles south of San Francisco, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest lighthouses in America, has been guiding mariners since 1872.
