Non-native plants and animals that have invaded California over the decades will be the focus of the state Department of Fish and Game’s annual California Invasive Species Action Week, which kicks off on Saturday.

Through Aug. 10 Fish and Game will sponsor a series of events around the state aimed at increasing public awareness about invasive species that harm native plants, animals and habitats, the department announced Friday.

In Los Angeles, the nearest event to the Santa Clarita Valley will be held in Calabasas, at the Cienega Sin Nombre creek, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Volunteers led by TreePeople and the Mountains Restoration Trust will remove invasive species and expand the habitat along the creek, officials said.

Cienega Sin Nombre (Creek With No Name) is “the cleanest body of water in Los Angeles County,” the state Fish and Game’s website says. It’s also a natural wildlife corridor for dozens of different animals.

The department’s website also provides a list of invasive plants along with instructions on how to remove and replace them with native vegetation.
