The proposed area of restoration is the extent where Jubata grass is (~0.25 acres). The Jubata grass is located above the Scotts Creek Estuary, and visible from Highway 1. Cal Poly Corporation/ Swanton Pacific Ranch staff will complete manual removal of Jubata grass in the project area. To avoid impacts to local fauna and flora, particularly Red-legged frogs, these activities will be completed between August 1 and October 15 as recommended for such activities at a similar site, Elkhorn Slough. Furthermore, a consulting botanist will be brought to the site ahead of any management activities to avoid any impacts to native botanicals in this un-surveyed reach of Scotts Cree, (G. Hayes per comm. 2008). The removal of invasive plants from the site will improve habitat for a variety of wildlife in the area.

This project is on private property, will not have a negative effect on endangered and/or threatened species habitat and will not include wetlands restoration or disturbance.
