Purpose: To engage undergraduates with opportunities to explore natural reserves, parks, and other outdoor areas, and to facilitate interactions with faculty/graduate students and other ecological professionals.
On November 11th, we joined the Rivers & Lands Conservancy once again, this time to help in their Sand Dune Restoration project at the Boruchin Preserve in Colton. Here, we installed wooden shims, watered plants, and spread California native seed by hand, all in an effort to protect this vulnerable environment against erosion from wind. With these efforts, we are helping the sand dune environment prosper for years to come. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
