    In the Guide to Native and Invasive Streamside Plants we
    provide information to help protect one of the most valuable
    elements of a living stream—riparian vegetation. Using this
    guide, you can help restore and enhance one of California’s
    most vital and endangered resources: the living stream
    environment.
    The “Native Riparian Habitats: A Conservation Bargain” section
    summarizes the many ways in which riparian habitats provide
    us with valuable services and protections.
    The “Invasives” section explains the reasons invasive plants
    are so detrimental, covers the basic methods used to remove
    them and provides profiles of some of the area’s worst invasive
    riparian plants.
    The “Natives” section outlines the key elements of a native
    plant community, offers basic instruction in techniques for
    revegetating a riparian habitat and provides profiles of some
    of our most important native riparian plants. This section
    includes a Native Plant Summary Guide for easy reference.
    And the “Resources” section provides many sources of
    additional information, such as where to get information
    about permits that may be required, where to buy native
    plants and a list of local organizations that can provide
    assistance or aid to restoration projects.
