Volunteer Opportunity: Santa Monica Creek Trail Restoration

Come out this weekend to help beautify Santa Monica Creek Trail! This volunteer work creates habitat for important pollinators and helps native plants thrive. Volunteers can drop in and lend a hand anytime on Saturday, Nov. 12 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Led by trail steward Ray Kolbe, volunteers will plant provided CA natives and lay down cardboard and spread mulch to keep invasives from crowding out native species. The workday is part of an ongoing effort to plant native species and beautify the often overlooked creekside trail that runs along Santa Monica Creek from Via Real to Foothill Road. Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves, a hat and water. Join the effort at El Carro Lane and Santa Monica Creek. To learn more, contact Ray at or (805) 705-3429.
