October 3, 2013 (Alpine) – On Saturday, October 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, join Restoration Ecologist Scott McMillan of AECOM as the environmental consulting firm begins its initial effort to restore our very own populations of the rare and endangered San Diego Thornmint at Wright's Field in Alpine. During this walk, he will introduce our group to this tiny member of the mint family, which is a federally listed endangered plant that only grows in San Diego County.
For those interested in getting more involved, McMillan and BCLT will be recruiting volunteers for more hands-on restoration of the Thornmint populations over the next few years. Learn more about the thornmint and how you can help out at this event. Group parks and meets at Joan MacQueen Middle School - 2001 Tavern Rd, Alpine. Sponsored by: Back Country Land Trust. Full calendar of events for Fall 2013 is available at www.bclt.org.
