Caption
390303 27: The sun rises behind native fiddlenecks on the Elkhorn Plain at the Carrizo Plain National Monument, June 1, 2001. Although the grasslands were greatly harmed by the introduction of non-native plants, managers are experimenting with highly controled grazing techniques to devour the exotics and give native grasses a fighting chance. President Bill Clinton established the national monument in his final days in office to save the last large remnant of the aboriginal ocean of grassland that once covered central California. In late March, President George W. Bush announced his intention to review the Carrizo with an eye toward opening the monument to oil exploration. (Photo by David McNew)
