Habitat Restoration

The coastal sand dunes along Linda Mar Beach are among the most dynamic and fragile natural formations relying on our commitment to protecting and preserving them. Native plants are believed to host up to 400% more insects by mass as a food source than non-native plants. Restoration is vital to a healthy ecosystem and protects the beach, shorebirds, and wildlife. In Pacifica, restoration is critical for preserving habitat for the threatened western snowy plover and coastal bee populations on the Pacific coast.

Restoring this landscape involves removing non-native invasive plants and weeds (i.e., mustard, thistle, fennel and ox tongue) followed-up by planting locally sourced coastal native plants (i.e., yarrow, bee plant, coast buckwheat, seaside daisy and others) to maintain, increase and sustain biodiversity, and to stabilize hillside slopes. Three endangered species are found near this area: the San Francisco garter snake, the San Bruno elfin butterfly, and the California red-legged frog, and they need a native habitat to survive. Habitat restoration is critical for preserving habitat for these endangered species.
