CDFW is issuing a permit to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden pursuant to Fish and Game code section 2081(a) for a project to conduct plant and pollinator monitoring activities and the collection of seed or cuttings from plants for conservation collections. Work will be conducted in spring and early summer, and three visits to project locations will likely be conducted each year.
The project will involve data collection and research of the California endangered Malacothamnus fasciculatus var. nesioticus that will help facilitate recovery of the species. Collection of plants will be limited, and will not result in a serious or major disturbance of CESA-listed plants.
