Project: Southern California Coastal Watersheds Arundo Eradication

Description: An implementation grant to the Mission Resource Conservation District (MRCD) for a cooperative project with the La Pata Mitigation Project, Integrated Regional Water Management, US Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE), and local agencies to control 98 acres of the invasive, non-native plant Arundo donax (Arundo) on 17.8 river miles over four watersheds in Southern California: San Juan, Santa Margarita, San Luis Rey, and San Diego watersheds in both Orange and San Diego Counties. This WCB project will fund activities that are part of watershed programs that already exist, and so will have benefits in terms of long-term success/follow-up, outreach, and a large-scale watershed based approach.
