Document Description
The proposed project is a stream restoration action involving removal of invasive plant species (Vinca major in particular) and also includes erosion control methods and re-vegetation at or near the bank of Green Creek; a small tributary of Salmon Creek. The operator proposes to remove populations of invasive plant species using one or several of four outlined methods which include: (1) hand removal with garden forks; (2) "sheet mulching"; (3) a method that is similar to method 1 with the exception that chips from trees trimmed on the property will be used instead of straw; and (4) heavy black plastic sheeting. Plants used for re-vegetation purposes include Oregon ash, alder, big leaf maple, and wild rose as well as supplementation from local stock of western sword fern, native blackberry, redwood sorrel and Arroyo willow. The project site is located at various riparian areas on Green Creek on the property of 2155 Bohemian Highway, Occidental, Sonoma County of the Camp Meeker 7.5 minute U.S. Geological Survey quadrangle. Department of Fish and Game is issuing a Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2005-0341-3 pursuant to Fish and Game Code Section 1602.
