San Diego Thornmint Restoration at Mission Trails with Restoration Ecologist Mark Dodero

May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a presentation about the park’s Thornmint Restoration Project and an overview of rare plants at Mission Trails Regional Park (MTRP). Restoration Ecologist Mark Dodero will summarize the work performed on a previous San Diego Thornmint project (2018-2020), made possible through a grant from SANDAG to the MTRP Foundation. He will share about the first year of a new four-year effort to continue and expand the program, which recommenced in fall 2023 and has also been funded by SANDAG. Mark will discuss the goals and challenges of restoring and enhancing San Diego thornmint habitat in the park.

San Diego thornmint, an annual species, is listed by the State of California as Endangered and by the Federal government as Threatened. San Diego thornmint is currently declining throughout its range. This plant occurs only in coastal San Diego County and northwestern Baja California, Mexico.

We hope to see you there!
