Tree tobacco and castor bean are large woody weeds that invaded local streambeds and take water and space from native plants and wildlife. Volunteers have removed nearly all of them from Santiago Canyon near Irvine Lake dam. Join Irvine Ranch Conservancy Land Stewards in continuing to keep these weeds at bay and helping native trees and shrubs to re-establish. We will be working in rocky stream beds and on uneven terrain away from trails and will use various tools to extract and treat plants. Wear sturdy shoes and be ready for some vigorous work. Training, tools, gloves, and chaps will be provided. Activity will involve bending, stooping, kneeling, and pulling.
Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.
