Document Description
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) awarded the Resource Conservation District (RCD) of Santa Cruz County a Forest Health Grant for the Skylark Ranch Forest Health Project (project) to implement ecological restoration of the Skylark Ranch Girl Scout Camp (Skylark Ranch) following the 2020 CZU Lighting Complex Fire. The project would involve vegetation treatments consistent with Coastal Vegetation Treatment Standards (CVTS) and the objectives of the California Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP). The RCD has prepared a Project-Specific Analysis (PSA) for the project as a later activity covered by the CalVTP Program EIR. Vegetation treatments would occur over 60 acres of Skylark Ranch. The CalVTP treatment types that would be implemented are ecological restoration and shaded fuel breaks, and the proposed treatment activities to implement the project are manual and mechanical treatments and targeted herbicide application. Ongoing treatment maintenance would occur annually, as needed, using the same treatment activities as the initial treatment.
