Guiton Trail Expansion
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The vision of this project is to create exterior interpretation exhibits/opportunities for the visitor center and the connecting lagoon trail. These exhibits will engage and educate visitors about environmental processes, recreational opportunities, and cultural history that influence the surrounding parklands.
Provide one regular and one ADA viewfinder (non-coin operated) at the overlook of the visitor center looking out towards the lagoon. Both units will need to be secured by placing the base in the ground. An estimated 12"x 12" hole with the depth of up to 16" will be used to secure the unit in previously disturbed soil along the visitor center property. Development of 7-10 new interpretive panels describing the local culture, flora, and fauna of our parks. These panels will be in English/Spanish to enhance the self-guided tour experience. Each panel will have two posts in the ground with an estimated 5"x5" hole and up to 24" deep. Update and print the 15-year-old self-guided tour brochure, which educates the public on the local culture, flora, and fauna along the lagoon trail. The brochure will be in English and Spanish to reach the underserved community in our area. Trail markers and the brochure holder will align with the self-guided brochure. The informal Chumash plant garden will now be incorporated into the lagoon trail. This will be accomplished by adding an estimated 135 cubic feet of crusher sand or decomposed granite to the informal trail connecting it to the existing lagoon trail. The material will lay over the existing informal trail.
