Any rare plants near areas of disturbance will be flagged and avoided. A worker formally trained in avoidance measures for Alameda whipsnake will continually monitor for presence of Alameda whipsnake during all phases of disturbance and ensure avoidance. Best Management Practices (BMPs) will be utilized and the invasion of non-native plant species will be monitored in all disturbed area. These locations will be treated as invasions are observed. There are no potential archaeological or historical resources in the project area, yet should resources be encountered unexpectedly, all work to be halted within 30 ft. of the finds until consultation with Senior Archeologist is completed.
