Document Description
The purpose of this project is to establish nine (9) permanent sample site locations within Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) to augment the parks existing Habitat Monitoring Program (HMP). The HMP was created to address Public Resources Code 5090.35, which mandates the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division to monitor the health of wildlife and habitat within each SVRA. Each of the proposed sample sites will be a one-thousand square foot rectangle (1000ft x 1000ft) and will be chosen from a randomly generated, array of twenty seven (27) potential locations at the discretion of park staff. Two of the proposed sampling locations that are selected will act as control sites and be enclosed with a one-hundred and fifty square meter fence (150m x 150m) to prevent any vehicular traffic within the site.
