INVASIVE PLANT ERRADICATION
Invasive plants, such as the ubiquitous Pampas Grass, are non-native plants that spread easily into preserves. They crowd out native plants and trees that provide shelter and food for wildlife. Seeds spread easily via wind and storm water.
The program will include homeowner education to encourage permanent removal of Pampass Grass from private property, and fund a licensed eradication service for Del Mar Mesa Preserve.
Facilities will include a horse rest stop, basketball court, restrooms, parking, tot lot and open use grass field, iconsistent with the semi-rural ambiance of Del Mar Mesa with landscaping largely native.
The Friends of Del Mar Mesa will fund amenities beyond those provided by the City Parks Department, which can include enhanced landscaping.
DEL MAR MESA/CARMEL VALLEY TRAIL MAINTENANCE & ENHANCEMENT FUND
A pledged donation from Manchester Resorts for trail maintenance in Carmel Valley and Del Mar Mesa administered by the Friends of Del Mar Mesa created this fund. A joint committee from both communities will oversee projects once fully funded.
