The project controlled the spread of 60 to 100 sites of Arundo donax within a 3.5 mile stretch of Bouquet Canyon creek utilizing integrated pest management. The sites were revegetated with native plant species endemic to the region (Baccharis salicifolia, Artemesia californica, and Quercus agrifolia) in order to enhance the natural ecology and preserve biodiversity.
