Sahara mustard is a top priority for removal when spotted on the Landmarks, as the weed begins to grow earlier than most native plants and has the ability to spread seed quickly and grow rapidly. Spreading of Sahara mustard throughout local habitats can use up vital natural resources, preventing native plants from establishing and driving out wildlife that depend on native plants for food and shelter.
Irvine Ranch Conservancy and its partners, OC Parks, City of Irvine and the City of Newport Beach, work diligently to help stop the spread of Sahara mustard on the Landmarks. If you are interested in helping with the removal of Sahara mustard and other invasive plants, consider volunteering with Irvine Ranch Conservancy.
