Eupatorium pull!

Big Creek intern Carly Boyd organized a group of UCSC students to come down to the reserve and pull Sticky Eupatorium (Eupatorium adenophorum), one of our most invasive weeds. They pulled several large patches along the interpretive trail, including a large patch next to Brunnette Creek. Thank you Carly and friends!
