Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Remove European beach grass from a 42 ha (103 ac) area in the southern unit of Tolowa Dunes State Park to improve coastal dune habitat for native species. Work will use manual (hand-pulling) techniques to remove European beach grass and other non-native plants with shovels or other hand tools to a depth of 2ft to remove to rhizomes to minimize re-sprouting. Once removed, plants will be consolidated into brush piles that will be burned individually or disposed of offsite.
