Rare Plant Monitoring in the Golden Gate National Parks

June 28th, 2011 - February 16th, 2012 | PROJECT

The Golden Gate National Parks stewardship programs seek to engage the community in the protection and restoration of local nature on public lands in the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to native plant revegetation and invasive plant removal, the public is invited to join park staff in monitoring rare plant species. The Golden Gate National Parks provide habitat for over 40 rare plant species, including 9 plants that are federally listed as endangered or threatened. Volunteers participate in the gathering of field data through census and sampling methods. These data are used by the park to evaluate the status of rare plant populations and determine management actions.
