Document Description
Use prescribed fire to burn approximately 33 acres of grassland in Salt Point State Park to reduce encroachment of brush into grassland habitat, and to reintroduce the natural cycle of fire to the landscape. Work will include mowing to create an approximately four foot wide by 4900 foot long fine line and use hands tools to scrape an 18-inch wide swath to bare soil. Firing operations will be a collaborative effort between California Department of Parks and Recreation, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, and if possible, members of the Pomo Kashia. Frequency of the prescribed fire may be annually, every several years, or greater, depending on the condition of the vegetation in the meadow and the availability of personnel and resources for prescribed fires.
