Channel Islands Restoration assisted park biologists with their work to conserve the endangered and endemic Phacelia insularis var. insularis. We raked large areas of dead nonnative grass detritus in an effort to increase fertilization and germination of the Phacelia. The experimental section had a slightly higher success rate when compared to a control, but it wasn't substanial.

We also propagated and planted a species of extremely rare and endemic Dudleya at China Camp on the southwest side of the island.
