Letter: Spring into action removing non-native plants at Francis Beach, Saturday


By on Thu, April 23, 2009


The Coastside Land Trust will hold a Francis Beach restoration event on Saturday, April 25, 12:30–3 pm.

The best time to remove spring non-native annual plants is before their roots are well-established and before they start to produce seeds. This Saturday, after a discussion of native and invasive plant strategies for surviving drought, we will identify non-native and native plants and selectively remove non-natives to help our natives thrive.

Please join us; children and families are always welcome. Check in at the Francis State Beach kiosk at Kelly and the Pacific Ocean, and proceed north on the maintenance road to the maintenance sheds. Our properties are on the east side of the maintenance road. Refreshments, California Poppy seeds, good humor and appreciation are provided for all ages and abilities.
