Document Description
The project is the strategic placement of oversized boulders in the designated parking areas of the Pushawalla, Biskra, and Macomber Palms oases located on the Indio Hills Palms property. These 2-3 ton boulders will be set on the ground around the parking areas to discourage illegal off-road vehicle trespass into the nearby palm grove oases. The boulders will be brought in from an off-site certified quarry. Existing surfaces disturbance in the vicinity of the oases, as well as trash, will be removed to rehabilitate the oases. No impacts to sensitive cultural, biological, or paleontological resources would occur.
