Document Description
This project consists of habitat restoration throughout the Tijuana River Valley in Border Field State Park. Exotic vegetation will be removed througout the Tijuana River Valley. In Border Field State Park, the project will concentrate on removing the giant reed (Arundo donax), castor bean (Ricinius communis), and tamarisk (Tamarix ramosissina), in the alluvial fan of Goat Canyon. In addition 5 large Eucalyptus trees will be cut down and chipped. These trees have seeded the area with numerous small seedlings that are encroaching native Willo habitat. Arundo will be moved too the ground with a tractor mounted flail, sprouts will be sprayed with "Round Up", Tamarisk will be cut and stumps painted with "Round Up." To protect the native bird species this project will not occur during nesting season.
