The California Native Plant Society and a diverse alliance of organizations will implement a two-pronged campaign to stop a proposed wind development and secure the long term protection of Walker Ridge, a region that contains more than two dozen rare plant species. The campaign, relying heavily on virtual engagement techniques, is designed to have immediate impact while also raising the site’s profile and building a constituency of individuals and organizations that understand and care deeply about the importance of Walker Ridge.
