Volunteers needed to clean up McClellan Ranch.McClellan Ranch.

A local non-profit organization is holding another habitat restoration event in Cupertino this week.

Grassroots Ecology, which “leverages the power of volunteers to create healthy lands across Silicon Valley,” is hosting the event Friday, July 19. It will focus on restoring “grassland meadow ecosystem and provide habitat for native wildlife at McClellan Ranch Preserve.”

Restoration will include removal of non-native species and planting native ones. The event will be entirely outdoors, and organizers recommend participants bring water, sunscreen, and other sun-protection measures.

The event, set to run from 8 to 10:30 a.m. on Friday, will begin at the meadow sundial at McClellan Ranch, 22221 McClellan Road, in Cupertino. Parking is available at the site.

Anyone looking to participate must register online and fill out a waiver. That information can be accessed here.

Friday’s restoration event is one of a series, with future events set through December.
