Santa Cruz Island off the coast of Ventura (one of the eight Channel Islands) has become the poster child for successful restorations of ecosystems trounced by invasive plant species. Now conservationists are flocking to the island to learn new techniques and approaches. "Some of the things we learn out here give us at least a conceptual advantage when we go and try and manage those properties like Griffith Park," says a lead scientist from the California Nature Conservancy.
