California State Parks (CSP) is proposing to restore approximately 81 hectares (200 acres) of habitat at Trinidad State Beach (TSB). Over time, invasive non-native plants have established throughout TSB and are encroaching onto sensitive habitats. This project aims to restore coastal shrub communities and native forest understory by the removal of invasive non-native plant species currently inhabiting the area. The purpose of this project is to restore and protect these sensitive habitats while also preventing future degradation of these areas. The project will involve an integrated approach to invasive non-native plant control with treatment methods that will be determined by the target species and specific site conditions.
