The land was once rich, pristine oak and riparian forest, but years of over-grazing sheep and cattle ranches changed the land. Foraging, domestic animals prevented young seedlings from reaching maturity, changing the under story of the remaining trees and replacing the native perennial grasses with annual European grasses and mustard – which gave the state the nickname of the Golden State.
Working with the Community: Commemorative Oaks at Malibu Creek State Park
Partnering with California State Parks and leveraging volunteer efforts in the community, Commemorative Oaks is the successful restoration of oak woodlands in Malibu Creek State Park. Since 1992, MRT planted over 2,000 oak trees and native grasses, helping Malibu Creek State Park return to its native glory.
