Volunteer with CSERC!
     Participating in volunteer restoration projects is a great way to give back to the environment and to meet other people who care about environmental stewardship!   

      In a typical year, CSERC staff and volunteers will plant willows in denuded meadows, repair crumbling stream banks, build fences to protect damaged riparian areas, clean up litter along streams or rivers, and build new trails for public use.  Volunteer projects can be fun and a great way to help protect water, wildlife, and wild places
.

     Email julias@cserc.org if you would like to be notified of future projects!

Next Project, September 27th!:
Meadow fencing and restoration near Lake Moran off of Highway 4

Come and help CSERC and the Stanislaus National Forest by fencing a special meadow near Lake Moran! The site location is about a 1.5 hour drive from Hathaway Pines off of Highway 4.

The work should be completed in 9 hours including drive time. This is an important project that will protect a unique habitat.

We need 15-20 volunteers to help us out with this project.

What we are doing (pictured below left to right):

A. Pounding in t-posts for the fence line.
B. Running wire between the t-posts
C. Using trees as our fence corners
D. Attaching the wire to the t-posts to secure the fence.

Contact Julia to sign up or learn more: julias@cserc.org, or call 209-586-7440.
