Urban Encroachment & Invasives in Los Peñasquitos Canyon

Native habitat is threatened by the introduction of non-native plants and animals that invade the open space and displace native plants and animals from their natural homes. Friends of Los Penasquitos are actively involved in the removal of invasive plants and the restoration of native plants. In some cases herbicide is applied by City staff to control aggressive invasives. The City of San Diego Open Space Division develops Natural Resource Management Plans to determine where and how these disturbed areas are restored. Join a Friends of Canyons in your area.
