CANCELED - Volunteer Opportunity at Yerba Mansa Meadow - CANCELED @ Rancho Sierra Vista
The Yerba Mansa Meadow restoration project seeks to restore/enhance approximately 10.8 acres of wetland, riparian and upland habitat through invasive species removal and revegetation with native plants. This meadow is a good example of an ephemeral wetland that has yerba mansa as a dominant species, and this is somewhat uncommon.
 
This project aims to restore native habitat, and to improve habitat for bird roosting and nesting by introducing native plants that provide a variety of food sources. We will also improve the natural appearance of the wetlands.
 
Native species for this project include species known to occur in and around wetland areas (yerba mansa, mugwort, spreading rush, mule fat, golden current, deer grass, giant wild rye) and common coastal sage scrub species (purple sage, California buckwheat , California sagebrush, elderberry).
