Agave Vandalism Removal (20/21-SD-17)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project will conduct the removal of several large Agave americanas from the space between Toler’s Leather Shop, and Miner’s Gems & Minerals, near the mineral panning area (see attached map). The agaves have been heavily vandalized by the park visitors and the vandalism is now starting to spread to the surrounding structures. Removing the agaves will require first cutting off all of the “pencas” (leaves, or blades) and then digging out the “piñas” (stem), digging approximately 6-10 inches into the ground. The work will be executed by district maintenance staff members. We will use the lift gate on a truck to safely move all of the removed agave parts to our green waste bin for disposal. The remaining hole and area will be backfilled and repaired with stabilized DG, which we already have staged in the Seeley Yard. At the moment we have no plans to replant that area.
