Protecting Plants from Woodrats
We have many species of woodrats in California. These little critters make their homes in brush and under and in trees. Woodrats eat fungi, fruit, bark and have really enjoyed munching on our plants and seeds in the nursery. Bolt, our habitat restoration intern, finishes off some plant cages, which will protect our plants from the rats. One of our SPAWN volunteers, Dean Hanson, helped us create these cages, a preventative measure to help our plants and seeds grow!
We're looking for a Habitat and Restoration intern to assist with planning, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of habitat restoration projects in the Lagunitas Creek Watershed. Free housing is provided. Read a testimonial from Anna Sweeney, our former Redwoods and Climate intern.
Come volunteer with us!
