The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is issuing a permit to the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 2081(a) for a project to collect seeds from Vine Hill clarkia (Clarkia imbricata) plants and introduce them into unoccupied areas of suitable habitat at the Vine Hill Preserve. Seeds will be collected in fall 2019 and 2020 and distributed into suitable habitat in the same season they were collected. Seeds will be collected by hand as they mature and before they drop from the parent plant, with a small amount of seed collected from as many individuals as possible to maximize genetic variation. Seeds will be cleaned and temporarily stored at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation office until they are introduced into areas with existing habitat that closely mimics the current occupied habitat. If necessary, minor hand weeding of nonnative herbaceous species will occur prior to introducing the seeds. The population will be monitored each spring for five years, through 2025. Monitoring will consist of mapping the distribution of Vine Hill clarkia and estimating the number of plants in the population. Additionally, the effectiveness of the outplanting methods will be evaluated, which will inform potential future introduction efforts for the species.
