Document Description
This project is under the Master Permit issued to the Santa Cruz County Resource Conservation District (RCD) to administer the Santa Cruz Countywide Permit Coordination Program, for small, environmentally beneficial projects on private lands in Santa Cruz County. The goals of this project area to 1) restore a riparian community by removing the exotic ground cover (mostly Cape ivy) on about one and a half (1.5) acres, and 2) conduct research to identify the most successful and cost-effective method to use on the remaining four (4) acres. The entire site is approximately five (5) acres and is dominated by Cape ivy, a non-native invasive plant that thrives in riparian ecosystems. The site is situated on the east side of Coward Creek, just north of Carlton Road, Watsonville in Santa Cruz County and extends upstream approximately 800 linear feet. The entire 5-acre parcel constitutes a conservation easement held by the Land Trust of Santa Cruz County of the property. All project work will take place within this easement. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2008-0425-03 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Santa Cruz County Resource Conservation District and USDA Natural Resources Conservation District.
