Local Habitat Restoration Projects (Non-Chapter)
Santa Clara County Open Space Authority
Santa Clara County Open Space Authority's Land Stewardship Program protects, restores and enhances the natural environments on open space lands by removing invasive plants, and by propagating and planting native plants.
Invasive plant removal: Eradicate nonnative plants that crowd out important habitat species. Projects are conducted on various OSA properties, including areas closed to the general public.
Native plant nursery: Help OSA staff operate our native plant nursery. Plants grown in the nursery are used in revegetation projects and natural resource restoration projects.
Restoration: Projects include site clean-ups and habitat restoration. They can take place on various OSA properties throughout the year.
To participate in a land steward activity, a volunteer must be at least 14 years old and, if younger than 18, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Volunteers are welcome on a one-time basis or they may attend work days regularly.
