Monarch Butterfly Overwintering Site Management Plan For Pismo State Beach
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
In order to help ensure that Pismo State Beach continues to provide high quality habitat for monarch butterflies, the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, in coordination with staff from California Department of Parks and Recreation, has prepared a 5-year site management plan to better plan and implement management actions which support overwintering monarchs in both the short and long-term duration. The site management plan includes the goals of the plan, site history and description, plan development, tree management, nectar management, outreach and education, management recommendations, monitoring, next steps and plan implementation. In addition to the site management plan, up to 1000 linear feet of shallow trenching may be required to extend the water connections under fool paths in the grove so that the newly planted trees can be properly irrigated. An archaeological monitor will be present during any ground disturbing work associated with the management plan and further irrigation work.
