Non-native plant removal and education
Grantee: County of Santa Barbara Ag. Commissioners Office
Total Cost: $31888
The Santa Barbara County Weed Management Area (SBCWMA) worked to remove pampas grass, Cortaderia selloana, from Elings Park, along the right-of-way on Las Positas Road at Portesuello Road, and along Cliff Drive adjacent to Elings Park. The removal of pampas grass will protect and enhance coastal natural habitat, increase native plant habitat and increase coastal resources of the Arroyo Burro estuary and associated wetlands. Signage will identify the project and its benefits and the areas being protected.
