Anacapa Island Habitat Restoration Blog

Welcome to the CIR Anacapa Blog!  This blog is meant to keep volunteers and others up to date with the exciting habitat restoration project happening on East Anacapa Island, part of Channel Islands National Park (NPS).  CIR is one of several organizations partnering with the park to restore the native plant communities of the island.  For nearly five years, CIR has brought volunteers to the island to remove invasive plants.  These volunteers have included hundreds of school children and even more adults.




Starting in 2011, the park and CIR started constructing a native plant nursery, with park funding and with funding from the Ventura Patagonia store and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  The NPS has a goal to eradicate iceplant from the island by 2016, and park staff is working hard with CIR and other organizations to achieve that goal.



If you would like to volunteer for the project, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at: volunteer@cirweb.org
