Calabasas Blue Habitat Restoration

July 20th, 2017

Location: 3815 Old Topanga Canyon Rd Calabasas California 91302
Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Jul 20, 2017

Come join Mountains Restoration Trust to help restore native grasslands in the foothills west of Juan Bautista De Anza Park in Calabasas.  We’re working to restore the land to its original state, including: removing invasive plant species; watering, mulching, and maintaining the land; planting native Southern California species such as purple needlegrass, wild rye, and other native perennials and shrubs. Gloves and tools will be provided for volunteers. Recommended gear to bring includes: sturdy closed
-toed shoes, a hat, sunglasses, etc.

Removing invasive species and replanting native grasses and shrubs will go a long way in helping limit the capacity of wildfires to spread, as well as limiting the water supply needed to keep these plants growing.


Have more questions, or want to get involved? Contact us at or call MRT Monday through Friday 8am to 4:30pm at (818) 591-1701 ext. 203.

Time Details

This project is ongoing, and UCLA students are welcome to create their own event date to work with MRT. All we would need is a headcount of students who would like to participate, a date they would like to volunteer, and a general time frame of when they would like to work, and we can set up an event for them.
