Document Description
CDPR and the National Park Service are proposing to complete forest and aquatic restoration and road removal activities over 9,200 acres within the Greater Prairie Creek watersheds. Restoration activities would occur in phases over time. Forest restoration would entail forest thinning to reduce stand density and enhance forest health using two operational methods: lop and scatter and biomass removal. Proposed aquatic restoration would include placement of large wood in streams, riparian planting, and enhancement of existing riparian stands. The Proposed Action would Include the removal of logging roads and related road infrastructure that threaten aquatic resources through the recontouring of these disturbed areas to pre-logging conditions. Some roads would be retained and maintained. Implementation is anticipated to commence in late 2019.
