December 8, 2012 (RESCHEDULED TO 12/8/2012)
10:00am - 1:00pm
After a year of fun celebrations to honor the 40th anniversary of Marin County Parks, we’re topping things off with a very special and rare event in the San Geronimo Valley! With generous support from the San Geronimo Golf Course and in cooperation with Brownie Troop 32311, the public will be allowed to select, cut, and take home their very own pine trees from the Maurice Thorner and Roy’s Redwoods open space preserves. Monterey pines are invading Valley preserves and degrading native habitat. This event is for everyone, especially families, and provides an opportunity for the public to help us take care of the land.
Wild trees come in all shapes and sizes, and may not necessarily serve as a replacement for a traditional holiday tree. Participants will use hand tools and some of the trees are located on uneven and moderately sloped terrain. Marin County Parks will provide tools and gloves. Wear shoes appropriate for hiking. A limited number of trees are available, so reservations are recommended. Contact Natural Resource Specialist Matt Sagues firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 473-2686. Rain may cancel: Call (415) 473-2686 after 7am on the morning of the event for a recorded message. Meet in the parking lot of the San Geronimo Golf Course. From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take exit 450B for Sir Francis Drake Blvd west approximately 9.5 miles and turn right at the golf course entrance. The San Geronimo Golf Course is located at 5800 Sir Francis Drake Blvd in San Geronimo.
