Resources for Maintaining Biodiversity

We’re excited to share the Invasive Weed Management Strategy for Cooper Gulch Park that Humboldt State student Mason Zoerner developed in collaboration with Redwood Community Action Agency. It is a valuable tool that can be used to not only preserve biodiversity, habitat for birds, and maintain sequestered carbon but also address public health and safety issues related to vegetation.
