Nearly 3,000 marijuana plants were eradicated in the Sequoia National Park in September, after law enforcement officials discovered a pot farm in the Yucca Creek drainage area of a designated wilderness, a spokesman said.
Officials estimated the street value to be $7.5 million. No arrests have been made. So far this year, 21,000 plants with a total estimated value of $52 million have been eradicated. The September operation was completed with the help of the California Army National Guard’s Counterdrug Task Force.
