Join to pull dittrichia (also known as stinkwort) from Santa Teresa Foothills, located near Almaden Expressway in south San José. This area burned during the 2020 fires, and while most of the chaparral community has returned, so has a noxious weed – stinkwort! Stinkwort is an invasive plant that replaces habitat for native plants with monocultures, degrades habitat for native insects and animals, and is toxic to grazers. This beautiful landscape is home to some rare native species, so removing this invasive weed will help restore for the benefit of all.
