CDPR proposes to restore 222 hectares (550 ac) of coastal dune habitat along the northwest edge of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park (PCRSP). The primary goal of the project is to restore areas damaged by European beachgrass (Ammophila arenaria) infestation. The project would remove European beachgrass and other invasive exotic plants to restore natural dune processes thus promoting re-vegetation by native dune vegetation and restoring of sand movement. These efforts would increase the amount of suitable habitat for the federally threatened western snow plover (Charadrius nivosus nivosus) as well as other native dune-adapted plants and animals. The project would involve an integrated approach to beachgrass control with treatment methods that include mechanical removal, manual removal, and flaming.
