Citizen Science: Invasive Control – Silverado/ Santiago Creek

Citizen Science: Invasive Control - Silverado/  Santiago Creek

Invasive Removal:

Below Irvine Lake, Santiago Creek is joined by Fremont Creek before flowing, often unseen, down a broad wash into Irvine Regional Park and beyond. Much work has been done over several years to eliminate the many invasive plants in this unique area. Join a motivated group that will sweep through the diverse landscape targeting a few clusters of fountain grass and castor bean that have re-sprouted while keeping an eye out for isolated plants that have been missed. The recent rains will make the work easier and we will enjoy walking through a great diversity of native plants greening up and flowering after the rain and fire as well as spotting the occasional fossil. We will try to move at a quick pace, but the route will cover irregular terrain with lots of river rock, sand and occasional muddy spots requiring careful walking. Tools, gloves, snake chaps and water are provided. Good, closed toe shoes or boots are required. We will begin and end at Lot 15 of Irvine Regional Park.
