Four CSUCI students joined crew leaders Anne Russell and Cindy Kimmick on Old Lewis Rd outside the Camrosa water treatment plant. We talked to the trailhead, about half a mile. We hiked to the summit of Round Mountain and from there we spread out across the western slope of the summit where Russian sage and fountain grass are the most extensive. We worked until 11:30 cutting and bagging the invasive plants. At noon, we began to work our way down the trail, cutting and dropping fennel along the way. There was very little Russian sage lower down, but we did remove some. At the saddle, near the commemorative bench, the crew spread out and worked the lower western slope where Russian sage is a significant problem. We stopped at 1:00 to return to the cars, carrying 8 bags of plant material. Each large construction waste bag weighed between 10 and 15 lbs, we estimated. So that means we removed somewhere around 80-120 pounds of Russian sage We were happy to see that the summit area is progressing somewhat akin to Saddle Peak, where as more space for native plants is opened up, they start to reclaim their turf. We saw lots of little buckwheat plants springing up where they were previously absent. Nice poppies and other wildflowers, too. We loaded the bags in Cindy’s car for disposal at CSUCI’s dumpsters, which Jerry Mitcham had secured permission for in advance.
