Corral Hollow Creek Riparian Restoration
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Plant native trees and shrubs within the Corral Hollow Creek floodplain of Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area to rehabilitate the riparian habitat, provide an improved environment for park flora and fauna, stabilize the creek banks, and create a barrier to slow storm water and allow sediment to settle before entering the water system. The area has been surveyed and flagged for best possible planting sites. Five (5), two-acre sections of the floodplain were chosen based on spacing, soil composition, and other naturally occurring vegetation already present. Plant species chosen for planting include native sycamore, mule fat, red willow, and cottonwood. Work will include: • Collecting seed stock from existing park trees and giving seed to a local nursery for propagation; • Once plants are established in pots, transfer plants back to the park to allow for acclimation; • At chosen sites, use an auger to excavate 1' diameter by 2'-3' deep holes, add nutrient rich potting soil to the holes as well as some of the excavated material, and place plants in holes and backfill, leaving any excess soil on site; and • Have staff water plants weekly and complete monthly count surveys following completion of the plantings.
