 Volunteers are needed to help remove new invasive sea lavender plants that threaten the health and wildlife of San Francisco Bay wetlands. Invasive sea lavenders were detected and removed from the Strawberry and Corte Madera shorelines last year, although follow-up is needed this spring to remove new seedlings.

   

 

Please join Marin Audubon, the Bay Area Early Detection Network, and other concerned groups and volunteers to remove these plants. By acting now, while the populations are still small and contained to just a few sites, we can nip this problem in the bud.

Please note these are sensitive wetland sites requiring special permission to access. Because of this, and also because of the possibility of confusing the native with the invasive sea lavenders, we request that you do not enter these sites or remove invasive plants unless under the direction of a trained biologist permitted to be on-site.
