This project will eliminate infestations of Cape Ivy, Kikuyu Grass, and other non-native plants that have established near the terminus of the Santa Barbara water tunnel in upper Mission Canyon, through several rounds of manual weeding over the course of two years. The Santa Barbara Urban Creeks Council will reach out to their mailing list of active members, work with the Mission Canyon Association and their volunteer base, and actively recruit and educate the hundreds of people who walk by the site every day.
