Habitat Restoration and Inventory

November 9, 2011

Habitat preservation and restoration is one of the top priorities at Kilchis Point.  Invasive species such as Scotch Broom and Himalayan Blackberry are being eradicated and replaced with native plant species such as Twinberry, Salmonberry, and Cedar trees.  Habitat restoration has begun with the donation of over 200 trees from the American Association of University Women.  Volunteer work crews including adult and students performing community service have helped with the habitat restoration process.

An inventory of plant, animal and bird species is ongoing to help document and track ecosystem stability.  To date, over 85 bird and animal species as well as over 140 plant species have been recorded.
