Habitat Restoration Lecture

Habitat Restoration is still a new science with much to offer and the Rancho Mission Viejo Habitat Reserve is a place where the principles of this new science are being applied across a variety of habitats. Much of this restoration benefits the many special animals that occur within the Habitat Reserve including the California gnatcatcher. Least Bell’s vireo has benefitted significantly by past restoration efforts which have created substantial areas of willow forest that is now occupied by this species. Rare plants are also the subject of restoration efforts within the Habitat Reserve. Please enroll online. Thank you!
