The 490.75-acre Fore Project is part of the larger 14,075-acre Hemlock Landscape Restoration Project, aimed at improving the ecological resilience of forested communities, resulting in a forested landscape expected to withstand catastrophic wildfire and the ecological and water quality damage potentially caused by such events. The Upper Mokelumne River Watershed Authority (UMWRA) completed an Initial Study and Negative Declaration on the Hemlock Landscape Restoration Project and filed a Notice of Determination as a Lead Agency in January 2018. In 2018, the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) authorized agreement #1033 with UMWRA to implement the Cabbage Patch Restoration Project, another project within the Hemlock Landscape Restoration Project. SNC is now authorizing an amendment to agreement #1033 to allow funds to be used to implement the Fore Project.
See NOD for full details.
