Coastal Dune Habitat Restoration
On September 22, 2018, Root Republic celebrated Plant a Tree Day with One Tree Planted! It was a pleasure to help sponsor the event held by the San Diego River Park Foundation in our hometown of San Diego, California! Our team helped preserve one of the last Coastal Dune Habitats in California. It was great connecting with friends, family and local community while showing our commitment to the environment.
This incredibly unique ecological area at the opening of the San Diego River is part of a 300 acre estuary. Coastal wetlands are significant for their unique environments, serving many critical functions for both marine and freshwater plants, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, some of which are threatened and endangered species.
We participated in activities including invasive plant removal, native plant watering, footpath maintenance and trash removal. This work helped restore this sensitive area at the mouth of the San Diego River. Volunteers learned about this fast-disappearing vital ecosystem and the role they must play in keeping it healthy.
This event helped reinforce the purpose and mission of our company. Our companies mission is to raise environmental awareness by taking direct action while providing top-quality outdoor products!
