River Partners completed planting on habitat restoration projects in Proctor Valley and Upper Otay Reservoir at the beginning of last winter, and site maintenance has been in full swing.
Over the winter, we worked on controlling non-native grasses and other invasive species on both properties, and native plants have begun to establish. The projects have been well received by the local community and recreationists and will continue to provide benefit to local residents and wildlife as plants continue to grow.
We’ve identified additional funding opportunities for expanding efforts in the area and have submitted grants in partnership with the Urban Corps of San Diego to both expand control of non-native species and plant additional oak trees.
