On Saturday, April 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., volunteers will remove Ammophila (or European Beach Grass) and other invasive plants from scenic Big River Beach located between the Big River estuary and the historic village of Mendocino.
On Saturday night, a complimentary dinner will be served in the Woodlands historic Camp One dining hall.
On Sunday, April 27th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., volunteers will work to remove invasive English Ivy from mature stands of redwoods bordering Big River.

In 2002, Mendocino Land Trust acquired the 7,334-acre former industrial logging property and turned it over to California State Parks. Big River, home to endangered Coho Salmon and threatened Steelhead Trout, is also one of the longest undeveloped estuaries in Northern California. Since 2004, MLT’s Big River Stewards have been working to remove invasive plants, control erosion and monitor avian and aquatic resources.
