started restoration of the bosque. Salt cedars, Russian olives
and other non-native plants are being removed. They will be
cut off at ground level and treated with a herbicide which will
kill the plants. The wood will then be chipped and spread around
the area. Some of the dead and downed will also be removed with
some left as natural habitat for animals and birds. Larger pieces
will be cut to firewood size and stacked at the North Beach
parking lot (near sewage treatent plant) for residents' use.
will be in the bosque from 7:30 a.m. till 4 p.m., Mon. - Fri.
This phase will take about three months.
