Come help manage invasive plants in Mission Bay to protect endangered birds!

This is an exciting opportunity on an otherwise off-limits island! We will be working to remove invasive plants from FAA Island. We’re doing this to promote nesting by the California Least Tern (an endangered species) and create space for native coastal dune plants.

The event will be on Saturday, March 11th from 9:15am - 12:45pm. The departure location will be from the Ski Beach boat dock, located on Vacation Road. Departure time will depend on the total number of volunteers, so please RSVP for additional information.

Volunteers should wear long pants and sturdy shoes, and sun/rain protection as weather indicates. Work gloves will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own pair if available. We’ll have water, but don't forget to bring a reusable water bottle for refills!

Please note that there are no bathroom facilities on the island and due to its difficult accessibility we cannot accommodate early departures.

Questions/Directions/RSVP: Call or email our Conservation Project Coordinator, Megan Flaherty. or (858) 273-7800 x106.
