Description

See also: Coastal Prairie, Habitat Restoration

The Coastal Training Program (CTP) has been developing extensive educational programs on several sensitive coastal ecosystems, including California's coastal prairie. Coastal prairie is the most urbanized major plant community in the U.S. and contains more plant species per square meter than any other grassland in North America. In addition, there are numerous rare, threatened, and endangered species associated with coastal prairie: most of these species are native, annual wildflowers, which require active management of the grasslands to continue to thrive. Our goals with our sensitive habitat educational programs are to: - Facilitate scientific consensus on identifying the habitat and provide this consensus on the CTP web site - Provide up-to-date review of primary conservation concerns - Clarify policy protocol for conservation - Facilitate understanding of ecosystem response to varying restoration and management techniques - Provide reference material including an on line bibliography - Provide a conduit for expert review of key concerns in a timely and clear manner Thus far, the Coastal Training Program has sponsored two workshops and a number of field trips on California's coastal prairie. In addition, we are collecting any and all information on this habitat. The links below contain valuable information. If you would like to contribute anything to this database, please contact Grey Hayes.
