Document Description
FYI: Final This Restoration Plan/FEIS will guide management actions to restore and conserve native species diversity and ecological function to selected high elevation aquatic ecosystems that have been adversely impacted by human activities, particularly the past stocking of nonnative trout. The project would also increase the resistance and resilience of native species and ecosystems to human-induced environmental modifications such as disease and unprecedented climate change. The removal of nonnative trout has been shown to be beneficial for native species. This Restoration Plan/FEIS would help us restore up to 15% of our high elevation lakes and streams over the next 25 to 35 years. Its implementation would affect up to 85 of the 550 nonnative fish-containing lakes, ponds, and marshes, and approximately 31 miles of streams in these parks.
