Stretch Your Civic Muscles: Volunteer in Marin
There are countless ways to support the greater Marin community, and summer brings opportunities to do that in the great outdoors.
MARIN COUNTY PARKS
Marin County Parks’ family-friendly events foster connections to local open spaces. Help clean up the Civic Center grounds after the Marin County Fair in San Rafael, improve wildlife habitat by installing sheet mulch at Hal Brown Park in Kentfield, pick up trash at Upton Beach in Stinson, or help protect rare wildflowers on Tiburon’s Ring Mountain.
MARIN MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT/ONE TAM
On the second and fourth Tuesday of every month, volunteers are invited to support the One Tam wildlife picture index workshop. “Community scientists” help maintain wildlife cameras and process and catalog photos. Training and snacks provided; newbies and experienced catalogers welcome. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
