The purpose of the project is to enhance and protect the Upper San Diego River through education, mapping and targeted removal of less than one acre of the invasive non-native plants Tamarisk ramossisima, Washintonia robusta, non-native broom species, and Arundo donax. Removing the small stands that together comprise less than one acre in size enhances the quality of habitat by reducing fire risk, increasing water availability to native species, providing better quality habitat to native species for nesting, cover and foraging, and reduces the risk of further spread within the catchment.
