**CANCELLED** Restoration Crew: Higgins Pond Preserve

**Due to public health and safety concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic, Bear Yuba Land Trust will be canceling community gatherings and volunteer days through May 1st, as guided by Governor Newsom’s executive order issued yesterday. Please email outreach@bylt.org with your questions or comments at this time.**

Join BYLT for a day of restoration at Higgins Pond Preserve on Wednesday, March 25th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm; please arrive at least 15 minutes early to fill out liability forms. Meet at the intersection of Combie Road and Cascade Crossing Road near Lake of the Pines or meet at the BYLT office, located at 12183 Auburn Road, at 8:30am to carpool to Higgins Pond.  Tasks for the day include working inside the pond to remove eurasian milfoil (aquatic invasive) to prep for the floating island project in April. Restoring this Preserve will improve the upland and aquatic ecosystems and will serve as an example of restoration in action in an urban environment. Volunteers will earn a Restoration Crew button for this event.

Safety: Wear long sleeve shirts, trousers, work shoes/boots, and gloves. Come prepared with plenty of water, a lunch, and everything you need to have a fun, safe work day. Please bring waders, tall rubber boots or a kayak if you have these items available; BYLT will provide all other tools and the expertise needed to complete the work. If you have any questions or comments, please email chemane@bylt.org 

Please note: In the event of rain, this workday will be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date. 

Sign up for the event using the form below, or email felicia@bylt.org with your registration information.
