Mountain Bike Stream Team Restoration at Malibu Creek State Park
Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 8:45 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
Invasive plants have negative impacts on natural habitats, so removing them is vital for a healthy watershed. Enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while helping remove non-native vegetation in an effort to restore native plants along Malibu Creek and its many tributaries.
There are some sites in Malibu Creek State Park that need work a mile or two from the parking lot. No problem for mountain bikers but a bit too far to ask volunteers to hike to. We're asking up to 20 mountain bikers to join us for weed-clearing events on May 19th and June 23rd.
- Bring your mountain bike & basic mountain biking skills
- Helmet required
- Bring anything you feel necessary for safe biking (patch kit, pump, etc.)
- Please wear sturdy shoes (we don't recommend cleated cycling shoes for weeding)
- Bring plenty of water and a snack
- Bring sunscreen/hat
- Be prepared to get dirty
- Gloves and tools will be provided
The ride is fairly easy, just one big hill to crest and a few rocks further up the trail, so if you don't have the latest high-zoot dual suspension rig, it's no problem.The organizer and volunteers will leave for the work site promptly at 9:00, the ride should take about 15 minutes.
NOTE: Ask for a parking pass for the Heal the Bay/Mountains Restoration Trust restoration event at the front gate. We'll meet at the upper parking lot near the picnic tables and restrooms at 8:45.
All participants must sign liability waiver forms.
The event is open to anyone 16 and over as long as they are comfortable biking off-road. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and have their waiver form signed by a parent or guardian to participate.
