Sahara Mustard Introduced at Remote Camp Sites

For the second year we've discovered Sahara Mustard Plants at the camp site area of Christy Ranch, Santa Cruz Island.  It is likely that a researcher, student or restoration specialist brought mustard seeds to this spot in their tent or other gear, resulting in an annual population of the plant  A sustained control and eradication effort will be in effect for many years to come. This is a good reminder to thoroughly check your gear before bringing it to the island.
