Thank you to all of our volunteers that came out to help with this project, and to those that donated time & equipment to make this project a success.
40 properties cleared of invasive and highly flammable Arundo donax, totalling 4.5 acres of Arundo canopy cover, and 21,865 pounds of trash and hazardous debris removed from Alpine's creeks and streams leading into the San Diego River and the El Capitan Reservoir (City of San Diego potable water supply).
Thanks to all of our funders, agency partners, volunteers, and local non-profit groups for supporting this important program!
Helping our local Alpine girl scout troop to earn their Bronze Award this year, BCLT is proud to announce that we've officially begun restoration of a small section of our native California bunch grass habitat at Wright's Field MSCP Preserve in Alpine. This quarter-acre section of our beautiful grassland habitat will be restored to it's pre-historic ecosystem, with native bunch grasses and wild flowers predominating, and will serve as a visual demonstration of the grasslands that the Kumeyaay Indians saw when they arrived over 8,000 years ago at the place we now call Wright's Field.
