Sahara mustard is a nasty non-native plant that has invaded thousands of acres across Southern California and has encroached at spots on the Irvine Ranch National Natural Landmarks. Now is the time to act to keep this highly invasive plant at bay! Loma Ridge was the initial encroachment and this population has been contained and steadily reduced over the last seven years through hard work performed largely by volunteers. Your help is needed to search for and remove any new mustard plants that have come up from seed. This event will include bending, kneeling and walking across slopes and uneven terrain. All training and tools will be provided. We hope you can join us!
