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.
