Volunteers needed to clean up McClellan Ranch.McClellan Ranch.

Cupertino’s McClellan Ranch Preserve is set for another round of volunteer habitat restoration this week.

Hosted by local non-profit organization, Grassroots Ecology, the event – part of a several-months’ long series – focuses on restoring “grassland meadow ecosystem and provide habitat for native wildlife at McClellan Ranch Preserve.”

These local restoration efforts help build community support for returning these habitats to their native glory, improving the health of area wildlife and preventing invasive species from spreading further.

The event is 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, November 1. It 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 here.

Organizers also stress that participants with accessibility issues are welcome, but should reach out in advance to ensure project flexibility.

Future events in the habitat restoration series are set through December, including November 13, December 6, and December 11.
