California Exotic Plant Management Team (EPMT) members hosted 20 Linking Individuals to their Natural Community (LINC) students and 8 Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy (GGNPC) staff for a half-day invasive plant project at Point Reyes National Seashore's N Ranch. After an EPMT project overview by Bobbi Simpson, Ryan Porter and Lynnette Nelson, the group successfully removed 3,350 invasive Scotch broom seedlings over 4.8 acres! Lunch was enjoyed on site, and the day concluded with Lynnette, Ryan and Sue Gardner (GGNPC) sharing their career experiences with the students.
