Irish Hills Natural Reserve Conservation Plan Update
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The project is the preparation and adoption of an updated conservation plan for the Irish Hills Natural Reserve in the City of San Luis Obispo, CA. (The original plan was adopted in 2003.) The plan calls for recreational (non-motorized) trail construction and usage, various restoration activities on damaged sites (including Froom Creek), and installation of interpretive features such as signs and kiosks at entry points into the Reserve. Recently nearly 400 acres of land has been added to the Reserve and the new lands need to be integrated into management of the Reserve. This is the primary reason for the Update.
