Santa Ynez Arundo Eradication
CIR is working under contract with the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians to eradicate multiple large stands of Arundo donax in a tributary of the Santa Ynez River. This work is taking place on the Chumash reservation in the Santa Ynez Valley. CIR worked closely with Chumash fire crews to cut and remove the Arundo while preserving the native flora in this sensitive and unique natural area. Chumash and CIR environmental staff continue to monitor the Arundo eradication.
