The Yerba Mansa Project restores native plants in the Bosque and provides educational programs for the community. Donate a few hours of your time to restore critical wetland habitat so that Yerba Mansa and other native plants can thrive along the banks of the Rio Grande. The focus will be on removal of invasive Ravenna grass and reseeding with native grasses and herbs to increase biodiversity and create improved habitat.
Meet at Tingley Drive, 0.8 miles south of Central, at the parking lot marked "Bob Gerding Catch and Release Pond" at the southern end of Tingley Beach recreation areas. Bring water, snacks, protective long sleeve clothing, work gloves and a shovel, if you have one. (Open Space will provide shovels and gloves for those who don’t have them.)
This event is open to all members of the community so bring your family and friends. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number in your party so we know how many volunteers to expect.
