One of our identified values, and a component of our mission, is to protect the plants and natural environment on the land we occupy. This often means taking an active role in managing certain areas for specific outcomes related to habitat.

Recent mowing of the Coastal Prairie on the south end of the property reduced potential fuel load in the understory of the cypress grove, serving as a fire break. Mowing on the north side is helping reduce invasive, non-native sweet vernal and velvet grasses, significantly improving habitat allowing native flora to reseed. Gardener and Naturalist Mario Abreu has seen significant populations of native wild onion, brodiaea, woolly sunflower, blue-eyed grass, coast buckwheat, and Castilleja latifolia ssp. mendocinensis, or Mendocino Coast Paintbrush (listed as endangered in California), returning to this carefully managed area.
