Pickel Meadow Emigrant Trail Marker
NOE - Notice of Exemption
CDFW proposes to grant one-time permission to allow the nonprofit entity Trails West, Inc. to install a single historical trail marker measuring no more than four feet in height, constructed of steel railroad rail, and bearing a contemporary quote from an emigrant journal. The purpose of this project is to provide public education opportunities regarding the cultural significance of the historic route used by emigrants traveling to Sonora, CA along the "Walker River- Sonora Emigrant Trail" during the 1850s, which is understood to have passed by this location. The installation of the marker will be accomplished with the use of hand tools and avoid mature vegetation. The marker would be installed in an existing parking area on the Pickel Meadow Wildlife Area that is currently open to public use subject to the rules and regulations for the Wildlife Area.
