Wild Equity will be helping to conduct the 2015 plant survey of the endangered Antioch Dunes Evening Primrose at the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge in Contra Costa County. It’s a great opportunity to visit a special place that is not always open to the public. There are plenty of wildflowers and butterflies to enjoy, and you’ll be helping to gather data that will used to keep this species alive and safe from extinction. This is a rare opportunity to work with an endangered species that is endemic to a very small local area. Join us and experience and service this unique and imperiled ecosystem. Training will be done on-site that day.

Wear: long pants (there can be scratchy plants and stickers), layered clothing, and sturdy walking shoes. Bring: lunch and water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and gaitors if you like to use them to keep plant parts out of your socks Raingear is optional (you never know). Morning temperatures can be chilly. We will walk all day (with several breaks) on mixed, sometimes hilly terrain, with some plants/trees to step over, under and around. That means good exercise, fresh air, wildlife and wildflowers to see and enjoy.

This survey will be held at the Sardis Unit at 1551 Wilbur Avenue in Antioch, 94509. Follow this link for directions.

This is not the only opportunity to volunteer for this project! There will be four different counting parties, two of which will actually be for the Contra Costa Wallflower. Wild Equity will only be in attendance at the last, but the folks over at the Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge could certainly use your help at the others, too!
