Dust Devil Nature Trail

It's open to the public.

They are still looking for volunteers (check it out).

16,000 plants have already been brought in this year. The uniformed gal told us, "The first year a native plant is in the ground is the most crucial to its development. It needs to get off to a good start."

Looking west from the trail is the 5 freeway, the Del Mar Fairgrounds and the Pacific Ocean.

Short, flat trails.

One of the volunteers hard at work.

A rock is used to prop up many of the new plants (or protect them from wind?).

Drainage and buffers from potential runoff and erosion are prevalent.

Just a bit of color at this point.

Trail is on El Camino Real. East of the 5 Freeway.
Between Via de la Valle and Del Mar Heights exits.
