Document Description
Notice of Exemption for the Live Oak Plaza Conservation Area Final Grazing Feasibility Study Recommendations. There are opportunities within the Live Oak Plaza property to reduce fuel loads that carry wildfire and to reduce weed populations in the non-native and in the native vegetation communities. The Live Oak Grazing Feasibility study outlines an approach and preliminary plan to use conservation grazing as a management tool for the property. The study proposes to implement intense, short-duration cattle grazing 1 to 2 times per year to remove annual weeds while leaving time for growth and seed set of native perennials, timed in late winter and a second event in spring.
