Mt. Helix Park's official habitat restoration team members.
About the program
As an Adopt-A-Plot volunteer, you and your family/team members can be part of the habitat restoration efforts by helping us to rid the Jewel of East County of invasive mustard weed and other non-native plants that are threatening the native habitat within the Park.
Since the group's formation in the fall of 2015, more than 20 volunteers have adopted 15 plots throughout the Park and helped rid the landscape of a large portion of the invasive weeds resulting in a healthier population of indigenous plant life and an increase in habitat for the local insects and animals that rely on them.
The Adopt-A-Plot program strives to educate volunteers about abatement techniques and how to identify native vs invasive plants so that participants can volunteer either independently or during regularly scheduled workdays.
To register for the Adopt-A- Plot program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Park office during office hours Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. until noon at (619) 741-4363.
