Scorpion Rock

  • Between 2007 and 2009, approximately 9,000 plants of 19 different species have been installed on Scorpion Rock, a small islet offshore of Santa Cruz Island.
  • In addition, there have been intensive hand-weeding efforts to eradicate non-native plant species from Scorpion Rock, primarily crystalline ice plant (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum), cheeseweed (Malva parviflora) and nettle leaf goosefoot (Chenopodium murale).
