The restoration project in Beartrap Meadow consists of 1) stabilizing channel incision, and 2) reducing road impacts on erosion and groundwater. The project would restore approx. 10 acres of meadow habitat leading to the long-term sustainability of meadow and wetland functions. This would accomplished by gully filling, installing grade control structure, and road redesign. Additionally, proposed head-cut work in the stream would restore and prevent further degradation 0.4 miles of a perennial to intermittent stream.
The project would have no effect (direct, indirect, or cumulative on any plant species listed for protection under the Endangered Species Act because all appropriate avoidance measures have been identified and will be implemented during the project as described in the appendices of the Management Plan.
