Article abstract: Dehesa nolina (Nolina interrata) and variegated dudleya (Dudleya variegata) are narrow endemic species that are priorities for management under the San Diego Management and Monitoring Programâ€™s Management Strategic Plan for western San Diego County. Both species declined precipitously on the South Crest Preserve after fire and subsequent invasion by nonnative plants. To stabilize and increase populations, CBI conducted a 3-year program that included seed collection, nursery propagation, and outplanting of nursery-grown plants into restored habitat.
