Document Description
This project will reduce the fire risk from non-native habitat in an urban environment through vegetation management and habitat restoration of fire-prone habitat to reduce fuel load. The project will also increase public knowledge regarding wildfires and steps that can be taken to reduce risk. The project will also enhance habitat health within the creek, provide education opportunities for SDSU students through field site visits, and support the community by providing young adults in the San Diego Urban Corps program with the tools to expand their career opportunities through education, life skills training, and paid work experience on projects that benefit our communities. The project is exempt under Class 1: maintenance of existing facilities as it involves maintenance of the vegetation in an existing waterway and canyon areas. The project is also exempt under Class 33: Small habitat restoration as it will result in environmental and habitat improvements as a result of removal of non-native vegetation. The project will also improve safety by reducing wildfire fuel loads.
