Come out to Santiago Park Nature Reserve in Santa Ana, the last Saturday of every month, to help us remove non-native invasive species, plant native plants that will clean the air, soil and water and help the habitat!

Come assist Back to Natives in restoring habitat for animals in Orange County at the Santiago Creek Nature Reserve in Santa Ana! We will be removing non-native plants along a steep slopes in the creek bed, so bring washed or new gloves (to avoid the spread of weed seed) and wear long pants, sunscreen, a hat, and closed toed shoes (hiking shoes preferred). Bring a snack and a re-usable water bottle filled with water. We will meet at the Back to Natives Nursery @ Santiago Park https://goo.gl/maps/mEgfDfbUFwk at 9AM, then walk together to the volunteer site where we will sanitize our shoes before entering the slope, and return to the BTN Nursery by 1200PM. *Humans under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

*This is a habitat restoration event, please leave your pets at home, as they can compromise habitat areas through scent and scat markings.
