Document Description
This project combines several smaller weed control efforts on the inland side of interstate 5. Weeds to control include significant acres of artichoke thistle, sweet fennel, tamarix, pampas grass, veldt grass, and black mustard. Seed collection, propagation, and replanting in weed control areas are included in this project. Work will focus on areas immediately around the federally endangered Brodiaea filifolia. Targeted herbicide application will be the main control method for exotics. Broadcast prescribed burning will also be considered and used for further weed control in the grassland areas to control for invasive grasses and other exotics. DPR-approved standard project requirements have been incorporated into this project. A copy of these requirements may be obtained by submitting a request to the project Environmental Coordinator listed below.
