Rice's Crossing Preserve Non-Industrial Timber Management Planning Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The SNC would provide funding of $64,550 to the Bear Yuba Land Trust to prepare a non-industrial Timber Management plan, which will serve as the functional equivalent CEQA document. Once it is adopted and approved by the Department of Forestry and Fire protection, the NTMP would guide potential management actions on 2,000 acres in the Preserve to reduce the threat of high intensity wildfires, promote resilient stand structures, protect nature's resources, and reduce the threat of watershed damage from erosion related to wildfire, other sources, or large scale mortality.
