- Document Description
- Project will promote the recovery of the federally endangered mountain yellow-legged frog (MYLF) by expanding their use of select streams in the San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains. The proposed project would continue trout removal efforts initiated in the summer of 2009 and evaluate additional streams for trout removal with the goals of increasing endemic MYLF use in these streams or allowing for the introduction of MYLF into waters that have undergone trout removal. This project will apply techniques used in high mountain lake trout removal projects.

- Type, Section or Code
- S:15306,15307,15308, Class 6,7,8
- Reasons for Exemption
- The proposed project is an activity within exemption classes 6, 7, and 8 because it is an experimental management and fish and wildlife resource evaluation conducted by the CDFW that is 1) limited in scope, 2) no serious or major disturbances to environmental resources are expected. The key amphibian species benefited by the project is a listed species under the Endangered Species Act. This project will promote the recovery efforts for mountain yellow legged frog within a portion of its native range. Portions for the proposed project were identified in the Western Riverside County Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan as being needed to ensure the survival of the MYLF.
