French broom and Scotch broom are invasive non-native plants to Marin. The yellow-flowered, fragrant shrubs displace native vegetation, spreading quickly to form large stands that crowd out native species. Brooms increase the potential for wildfires, as the plants burn readily and provide a “ladder” to tree canopies. Vast swaths on GGNRA, MMWD and Mt. Tam State Park lands, and Tiburon Open Space parcels are covered by broom.
Please watch this excellent video, created by three Marin high school students, to learn how you can help. The video features interviews with an open space volunteer, the Marin County Fire Chief, local botanist Eva Buxton, Tiburon Resident Jerry Riessen.
