North East Trees and the National Park Service will collaborate to revegetate and restore up to 10 acres of native habitat including 1.3 acres of seasonal wetland, 1.6 acres of riparian habitat, 4.9 acres of riparian buffer, and 2.2 acres of grassland/coastal sage.
North East Trees and the National Park Service will also collaborate to teach urban youth about native habitats and conservation needs in southern California and provide training in work and leadership skills necessary to implementing native habitat restoration projects.
The primary purpose of the project is to provide opportunities for youth to learn about the environment by spending time working on projects in National Parks.
It is the intent of this project to motivate its youth participants to become involved in natural and cultural resource protection of their communities. The project provides through its programming components, conservation skills training and development of leadership abilities in its youth participants and encourages them to share the National Park Service mission of natural resources stewardship with others in their communities.
