NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Re-route approximately 500 feet of the Rhododendron Trail halfway between the junction of Brown Creek Trail and South Fork Trail in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Re-shape existing trail section to original, natural contours, re-vegetate with native plants from the new alignment, and close existing section. Build and outslope new trail section to provide proper drainage using construction crews with hand tools. New section will restore public access lost when several giant redwoods fell across trail, and will reduce erosion caused by unofficial, volunteer trails circumventing the fallen trees. Best Management Practicies (BMPs) will be in place during all work, to prevent potential erosion, sedimentation, or pollution. Work will be performed outside of the breeding season for the northern spotted owl and marbled murrelet. In the event that previously undocumented cultural resources are encountered during project-related activities, all work within 30 feet (i.e., 10 meters) of the find will be temporarily suspended until a DPR-qualified archaeologist has evaluated the find.
