Please join us in helping to preserve rare and endangered plants at the Woodland Regional Park Preserve by pulling invasive weeds! Although many weeds exist at this site, we are currently focusing on Stinkwort (Dittrichia graveolens), a particularly problematic invasive weed. It can be controlled if enough hands are there to pull it!

We are working to improve the habitat for several rare California native plants, such as Palmate-bracted bird’s-beak (Chloropyron palmatum) and San Joaquin spearscale (Extriplex joaquinana).

The next weed pulling events will be on Sundays, October 22 and 29, from 8:00 – 10:30am.

Please come out and help! If you are interested, contact Jennifer Hogan at 530-867-6236 or jen.hogan1223@att.net.
