The Bay Foundation (TBF) has released the latest annual report for the Ballona Wetlands Restoration: Community Iceplant Removal Project (Year 5), indicating that the restoration project has thus far successfully removed over 34 tons of iceplant from the project area within the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve (Reserve), showing very little regrowth. Five-year highlights include installation of over 1,400 native plants and seeding native vegetation throughout the site. Over 25 native species were seeded or planted, and results show an increase in native vegetation cover overall. The project, which relies on community volunteers as well as TBF staff and partners, has also removed hundreds of bags of other non-native invasive plant species, which require ongoing maintenance. The project also aimed to broaden public involvement and stewardship at the Reserve. The project is in partnership with California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and Friends of Ballona Wetlands (FBW)…
