Today I was contacted today by Bill Neil who has offered his help to control the arundo in the wash. As many of you know, it’s a non native plant and negatively impacts all the native flora. Bill previously worked with the LADWP and WMA after the Station Fire to control this invasive plant.
On top of that, Art Miner tells me that he’s also about to sign a contract with another firm that’s going to begin remediating the arundo all over the wash for the next five years! So that’s really good news.
If anyone in Shadow Hills or LVT or Pacoima would like to get Bill’s contact information, let me know. He’ll likely be able to help you all too and the funding would come from public agencies.
