Broom Crowberry
Corema conradii (Torr.) Torr. ex Loud.

Threats [-]
The population is not highly threatened and fairly remote but browsing by deer continues to affect accessible plants. Hiking traffic is increasing because of mountain bike accessibility to the trailhead. Absence of fire may allow blueberries to spread into its habitat.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
There has been a long discussion to mark the trail through the portions of the populations that are more subject to trampling. This marking may involve placing small stones on both sides of the path to clearly mark the trail boundaries. This seems like a reasonable step. At a minimum, continue to monitor deer browse and hiker traffic.

Research Needs [-]
There are no current research needs.
