Next Event: To-be-Determined.
Who? Open to the entire community – all ages welcome. Families, individuals, scout groups, local clubs and organizations are welcome to participate. All volunteers under 18 must bring parent-signed permission forms, available by request. Volunteers under the age of 16 must attend with a parent or guardian.
What? Help remove invasive plants, plant native vegetation, control erosion, or cleanup the beaches at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (projects vary monthly). No special skills necessary to volunteer – only a willingness to get your hands dirty.
What to wear/bring? Volunteers must work in long pants and boots or sturdy, closed-toe shoes. We also recommend bringing sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. The Tijuana Estuary provides work gloves and tools.
Where to meet? For projects held at the Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge (TSNWR), meet at the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center. For projects held at Border Field State Park (BFSP), volunteers meet at the park’s entrance gate on Monument Road.
