Combating Invasive Plants with Weed Warriors at Hayward Regional Shoreline
The weed warriors event was held last sunday to try to help some of the endangered species that are being affected by the overgrowth of weeds such as Stinkwort and Ice Plant. These plants are taking over habitat, causing harm to the Pickleweed plant and the Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse mice who eat from it.
I believe we did a great job with the task even though it was challenging. We met our goal and hopefully the mice get to benefit from our work. Something that caught my eye was when we were at the shoreline was the fact that there was a lot of litter around and was wondering if this will cause any effect to the marine species.
