In joint coordination with Ron Vanderhoff of California Native Plant Society - Orange County Chapter and Bianca Bonilla, Executive Director of BCDI we'll be headed out for a great opportunity to contribute to science in one of the most imperiled areas in our state, and perhaps even the country. If we're really lucky we'll hear from Dr. Sula Vanderplank and other biologists representing the San Diego Natural History Museum. We're contributing heavily to an exciting citizen science program at one our country's most impacted and controversial development sites. At the Southern US Border with Mexico, the US has erected many different barriers (to variable degrees of intended success), pushing back against a dense crash of civilization from both sides. From the Tijuana River estuary and Border Field State Park south of Imperial Beach to San Ysidro and further east into Otay Mesa, an amazing and unique array of habitat that exist in a constant state of threat.
