Younger students set longest beach grass record

Students Poy-Wuson Aguilar, Tyler Stanley and Walter Durkee show off an 8-foot beach grass root at Lake Tolowa.
 Students with Klamath Early College of the Redwoods set the county record for younger students with their removal of European beach grass roots that were more than 8 feet long.

During 11 Community Action Project field trips, KRECR helped California State Parks and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife control this invasive non-native plant that destroys habitat for endangered plants, bees and birds. The trips are guided by the Tolowa Dunes Stewards, a program of the Smith River Alliance, with a grant from the California Coastal Commission’s Whale Tail License Plate program. 
Smith River Rancheria tribal employee Cynthia Ford introduces KRECR students to Tolowa Indian history at Big Dune in Tolowa Dunes State Park.
