Document Description
A Conditional Use Permit to allow restoration activities (Phase 2) to occur on 28 acres of coastal wetlands in the lower reaches of Wood Creek in the Freshwater Creek watershed. The project includes the excavation of channels and ponds; the removal (partial or complete) of a berm to provide better hydraulic connectivity between Wood Creek and its upper basin; planting hummocks to support riparian forest trees and associated species; the removal of invasive species, including canary reedgrass, the revegetation of the site with native plants to support use by wildlife an to promote greater stand heterogeneity; the placement of large woody debris to increase the structural complexity of the habitat; and the construction of sills at the bottom of some previously restored channels to support pool retention during low tides. Also included in Phase 2 is the construction of an interpretive and recreational trail, parking area, trail signage, a launch ramp that will provide non-motorized watercraft access to Freshwater Slough, a raised boardwalk as well as fencing and signage.
