The Marin Municipal Water District invites students (and parents, too!) to a special event celebrating Earth Day 2010 on Wednesday, April 14, at Phoenix Lake on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. The day’s activities begin with a habitat restoration project removing invasive periwinkle around the lake. After a lunch break, there will be a free workshop on mountain bike etiquette led by MMWD and Marin County Bicycle Coalition as well as equestrians from Marin Stables and Trails. There will be a group bike ride on the mountain after the workshop. This event is MMWD’s 12th annual Earth Day celebration.
MMWD will provide tools and gloves as well as breakfast snacks and water (please bring your own water bottle). The event is from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Participants should meet and park their bikes at the log cabin at Phoenix Lake in Ross at 9:00 a.m. The first 30 volunteers to arrive will be eligible to win biking gear, t-shirts and other prizes.
Volunteers must be 13 years of age or older and bring a signed MMWD release form if under 18. Pre-registration is required. To register and obtain a release form, call (415) 945-1128 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
