Document Description
Project work to be completed in connection with the RESTORING THE DEER CREEK HEADWATERS AT CHILDS MEADOWS PROJECT is intended to address current hydrologic and biological issues in order to increase hydrologic connectivity and recover other ecological processes lost due to human alterations of the Childs Meadows complex. These components were designed in a manner that will allow for treatment adjustments as necessary over time in order to assure long term meadow recovery. Project treatments have been designed so that natural materials will be used and energy within natural systems (e.g., sediment transport, beaver ecosystem engineering) can be effectively and efficiently utilized in order to implement some of the restoration work required to achieve Project goals and objectives. In-channel restoration actions have been supplemented with various Mitigation Measures related to cattle grazing and the elimination of livestock where possible; specific practices to recover and re-wet fens and discharge slope meadows that do not naturally have channels; and climate-smart planting plans to increase vegetative diversity and encourage beaver colonization from the lower meadow complex. Details of each Project component are described in the Project Description/Restoration Practices section within an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) and are shown in Figure 1 Restoring the Deer Creek Headwaters at Childs Meadows Project Location Map as well as Figure 2: Overview of Childs Meadows Project Area with Specific Features Identified found in the IS/MND. Schematics of proposed meadow restoration features are shown in Appendix J: Schematic Drawings with cross sections shown in Appendix K of that document.
