75 and Sunny

Another spring season has started here in the Central Valley of California and with it comes the inevitable, weeds. A significant component of my internship at the Cosumnes River Preserve is identifying, mapping, and treating weed infestations. It is not my favorite task, but I believe it is a necessary evil. This year looks to be an especially busy one. It seems new invasive populations are popping up out of the woodwork.
Last Thursday I was able to plant at my RD-150 restoration site with the help of fellow preserve co-workers. We had a great day for the planting and encountered minimal complications (Can we still consider this a restoration?!) Any other free time I have had in the past several weeks has been dedicated to writing the NEPA document for one of my other projects.
Until next time!!
