Anderson Marsh - Nature Walk to Focus on Native Plant Restoration efforts
Park: Anderson Marsh SHP
Interested in efforts to restore Anderson Marsh State Historic Park to a more “natural” state?
Join us on a Nature Walk with Jim Dempsey, State Parks Environmental Scientist
Saturday, February 8, 2014, 8:30am
On Saturday morning, March 8th, a special guided nature walk will be held at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park that will focus on native and non-native plants, the effects of the recent controlled burn performed at the Park and the native plant restoration plan being created by the Department of State Parks.
Jim Dempsey, the State Parks Environmental Scientist having primary responsibility for designing the plant restoration program at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park, will join Park Docents Henry Bornstein and Gae Henry on the walk. This is an opportunity to have your questions answered about what it might mean to bring the Park into a more “natural” state, the status of restoration efforts at the Park and the initial effects of the recent controlled burn.
Bring binoculars and meet at 8:15am under the big Valley Oak in the picnic area for time to experience the early morning wildlife to be found in the Ranch House and Barn complex yard – the walk begins at 8:30am. Many of the trees are “naked” in the winter, making it easier to see the many species of birds that frequent the Park at this time of year.
A tour of the historic Ranch House Museum will begin immediately after the walk. If rain cancels the walk, the ranch tour will begin at 8:30am. There is no charge for those attending.
Anderson Marsh State Historic Park is located on Hwy 53, between Lower Lake and Clearlake.
