Restoring Dunes and Salt Marsh at Ocean Ranch and Coastal Prairie on Table Bluff
Reversing the effects of invasive cordgrass and beachgrass at Ocean Ranch Unit of the Eel River Wildlife Area was the task tackled by California Department of Fish and Wildlife and partners. Ecological restorationist Kelsey McDonald will tell us how they did it and, after one year, “Is it working?” Reversing the effects of lack of disturbance on the nearby coastal prairie on Table Bluff was a second task, tackled with the Wiyot Tribe to restore the endangered Western Lily and culturally significant plants. The first step, removing the trees, was just accomplished. These are exciting, front-line, restoration projects. View on Zoom (LINK) or join us at Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Rd., Arcata. Refreshments at 7:00; program at 7:30. For field trips (Mar 15 and 23) visit Calendar and Register HERE.
