Document Description
The purpose of this project is to install an OHV training area to be used by the California Police Athletic League (Cal Pals) at the Hungry Valley District. This training area will be installed adjacent to the existing Cal Pals dormitory. This training area will consist of a 150' by 200' area which will be cleared of brush and mowed. A shade Ramada will be installed with a picnic table adjacent to this area. The perimeter of this area will be fenced with a post and rail type fence. The required excavation for this project will include four 10" diameter, 36" deep holes for the supports of the shade Ramada. Also approximately 40-6" diameter, 24" deep post holes for the fence. No other excavation will be required. The entire project site was repeatedly disturbed during the 1970s when this area was an agricultural field. Much of the area to be disturbed currently contains exotic annual grass and mustards. However, there are some native plants that will be affected by this project. They include Rabbit Brush (Chrysothamnus sp.), Buckwheat (Eriogonum fesiculatum), Golden-bush (Ericameria sp.), Great Basin Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentate). All feasible efforts will be made to minimize the damage to the native plan community. There are no threatened or endangered species at the project location. The soil in this area is a sandy loam of the Gorman Series. There will be no change in drainage patterns or sediment loss resulting from this project.
