March 12, 2018 (Santee) -- The Walker Preserve Trail in Santee will soon have 4,000 new plants and trees – all native to our region.
Cottonwoods, alders, sage brush, buckwheat and San Diego sunflowers are among the drought-tolerant species that will soon line the walking trail, providing habitat for birds and other native wildlife, NBC 7 reports. Native plants will also help improve water quality in the San Diego River and prevent erosion.
