Crescent Elk students set dune restoration record

Submitted

Crescent Elk students set the county record for dune restoration at school year's end by removing the longest European beachgrass roots of 16 feet, 5 inches and 11 feet, 6 inches.

On a science class field trip these young people boosted ongoing efforts by California State Parks and California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife to control this invasive alien grass that destroys native dune habitat for endangered plants, bees and birds. The trips are guided by Tolowa Dunes Stewards, a program of Smith River Alliance, with a grant from California Coastal Commission's Whale Tail License Plate program.
