Document Description
The project proposes to treat and control the invasive plant Clematis vitalba on approx 30 acres within Santa Cruz County's San Vicente Creek watershed. Clematis, a non-native invasive plant, has infested approx 70 acres within the San Vicente Creek watershed. The infestation poses a threat to anadromous fish and other wildlife habitat, water quality, and ecosystem health (including coast redwood habitat) throughout the lower watershed. The population has been identified as a "Red Alert" by the CA invasive plant council, s one of only two documented occurrences in the state. Additionally, this invasive vegetation management project was identified as a priority in the San Vicente Creek Watershed Plan for Salmonid Recovery, published in 2014 by the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County. The proposed project would entail the removal of Clematis by a variety of methods over a period of three years.
