Hare Creek Beach and Navarro Point Trail are two of our favorite places on the coast. Both offer gorgeous views of the ocean and both of them are beloved recreation sites for locals and tourists alike. At MLT, these two spots are very important to us; they are preserves that we own and maintain for public use. Maintaining public access means a lot of things: clearing the trail, clearing invasive species, removing waste, and so much more.
Here is where you come in. Each of these spots has a committed group of volunteers that meet regularly to look after the trails, clean garbage, and pull a lot of invasive species, like thistles and blackberries. It’s satisfying work, and let’s face it there are very few more spectacular places to do a little hard work. All you need to do is wear clothes for getting grubby, bring water and gloves, and come ready to work. We provide tools and training. While you're out there, you get to know some of the coolest people on the coast. And if you look close enough, you might even see a seal or a surfer.
The Hare Creek Beach Stewards meet every second Saturday at the parking lot at Mendocino College at 9:30. The next volunteer day is October 8, 2022. To find out more, or to sign up to volunteer, head here.
The Navarro Point Stewards meet the second Thursday of the month at 10:00 at the Navarro Point parking lot. The next volunteer day is October 13, 2022. Sign up here.
