Southern California Restoration Under Way
In San Diego, they’re finishing up restoration efforts.
An environmental team is nearly finished with two major restoration projects of endangered plants at Otay Ranch in Chula Vista.
One is the Otay tarplant, which has branching stems, green leaves and small yellow petals.
The other is the maritime succulent scrub, an assemblage of plants and vegetation that consists of coast cholla cactus, barrel cactus, jojoba and other succulents.
That seems like a good thing. I’ve never heard of “maritime succulent scrub” as a way to refer to a collection of coastal cactus, and probably some dudleyas in there as well, maybe a sedum or two.
