Restoration Native Bunchgrass
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The project will restore a native bunchgrass community at the CA Poppy Reserve. Seeds will be collected of native bunchgrass species found at the Reserve, the seeds will be planted in containers and nursery grown, and the grass "plugs" will be planted at the Reserve. The grass plugs will be planted by removing a similar size plug of soil from the ground approximately 2 to 3 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. The grass plugs will be irrigated as needed. Weeds will be controlled as necessary to reduce competition, using herbicide and by hand pulling.
Project does not exceed five acres in size, and assures the maintenance, restoration, enhancement, or protection of habitat for fish, plants, or wildlife provided that no significant adverse affects to the environment are anticipated due to the project's implementation.
