DATE AND LOCATION TO BE ANNOUNCED

Each May staff and volunteers with North Coast Land Conservancy focus on removing invasive Scotch broom on our properties: we call it Broom Buster Month. If you’d like to volunteer, watch this space for date and location of the 2018 broom-bust stewardship day. You’ll want to wear sturdy boots and gloves. Bring loppers if you have them; otherwise all equipment will be provided. Bring drinking water and lunch; there will be no toilets or potable water on site. Dogs are not allowed on NCLC properties.

Property owners are encouraged to remove Scotch broom and other invasive plants from their own properties during Broom Buster Month as well; click for more information and tips. Widely planted and admired in the early 20th century for its bright yellow blossoms, Scotch broom out-competes native plants and is turning our open coastal prairies into a monoculture of dense, weedy shrubs, destroying the habitat that many coastal animals need to survive.
