I am a restoration project manager in southern California working primarily in the Santa Ana foothills. I have enjoyed wild lands my entire life and have spent a good chunk of time hiking, mountain biking, and exploring throughout California. I have also spent many hours in the field with a machete and a backpack sprayer, painting things blue.
Invasive plants are a very real threat to the ecological integrity of natural lands and also have an enormous impact on the economy. Cal-IPC is a science-based organization focused on leveraging a limited set of resources as efficiently and effectively as possible for maximum impact. The scale of the challenge of invasive plants is daunting, so an informed perspective is crucial when attempting to make a difference. Cal-IPC provides this resource of knowledge.
Please help preserve the spectrum of unique and diverse biological communities we have in California by donating to this organization. Thanks!
