Native and Nonnative Plants by Michaela

After the fire in French Gulch all of the native were taken over by the nonnative plants. The nonnative plants that had taken over the native were called the; Himalayan Blackberry bush, and Tree of Heaven. The native plants we have planted are the native willow, wild grape, redbud, California Blackberry, and other species.
