East Bay Volunteer Project for Children on October 2



    East Bay Parks Rail Rescue Rangers

    If you are looking for a family volunteer project that will allow children please consider this!
    This hands-on adventure you’ll help create habitat for the federally and state endangered California clapper rail. We will remove non-native plants, pick-up trash, and plant wildlife friendly vegetation which will restore the upland areas of the Roemer Bird Sanctuary for rails. By participating, you’ll earn your “Rail Rescue Ranger” patch. Registration required by calling 510-544-2340. Parent participation is required.
