img_1488

The Skyline interns braved some wet weather to install native plants in Redwood Regional Park with Friends of Sausal Creek on Wednesday December 14th, 2016.

FOSC and Earth Team staff taught the interns about native plants and why they are often the best species choice for planting. Compared to plants from other climates and geographies, native plants are the best adapted to the Bay Area conditions. For example, most natives are drought tolerant, an important qualities especially during our current lack sufficient precipitation.

The interns successfully installed almost 100 plants of a large variety; including, california buckwheat, honeysuckle, tellima, lupine, and purple needle grass.
