Volunteers Needed to Preserve Big Sur Coast
Heavy Rains Quench Drought But Spur Explosion Of Invasive Species

Apr. 16, 2019 / PRZen / BIG SUR, Calif. — While winter rains have brought welcome relief to California’s drought conditions, they unfortunately are also fueling an explosion of nonnative plants that threatens Big Sur’s world-renowned natural resources. Nature Corps, a nonprofit volunteer conservation organization, is inviting individuals, families, and employee groups to stem this invasion by participating in a critical volunteer weekend scheduled for May 17-19, 2019.

The Big Sur coast of California is known as the “greatest meeting of land and water in the world,” and has been described as a “national treasure that demands extraordinary procedures to protect it.”

Volunteers are urgently needed to preserve Big Sur’s coastal mountain range where now smaller populations of nonnative flora are poised to overtake many acres of native habitat. Over time, these nonnatives will significant impact wildlife by reducing their sources of food and breeding habitat.

Don’t miss out on a great way to make friends, make memories, and make a difference. Sign-up for the weekend at: https://www.thenaturecorps.org/big-sur/. For more information, call 800.774-PARK (7275) or email info@thenaturecorps.org. Registration deadline April 30.
