Three Critically Important Conservation Actions to Recover Sierra Nevada Yellow-legged Frogs in the Northern Sierra Nevada
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Non-native brook trout will be removed from island Lake and perennial tributaries using mono-filament gill nets and backpack electrofishers. Translocation's of Sierra Nevada yellow legged frogs (frogs) will occur as part of two separate projects: 1) from Highland Lake to the Q Lakes and; 2) from Pyramid Lake and Rivendell Pond to Jabu, Lucille and Cagwin Lakes in Desolation Valley. Frogs will be transported on foot using backpacks and small containers. Work will be implemented by CDFW and sub-contracted University of CA Santa Barbara (UCSB) field crews during the summer months of 2017, 2018 and 2019.
The project is to restore and enhance populations of native frogs.
