Cannabis Campsite Restoration (22/23-SD-02)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project proposes to restore and enhance approximately one-half acre of land, including approximately 800 feet of unauthorized trails, within Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. The site was home to a vagrant for several years who cleared significant areas of brush and modified the landscape. The disturbance caused by the land clearance and cannabis cultivation at this site has allowed for the establishment of large amounts of pampas grass and boobialla, invasive plants which thrive on disturbed landscapes. Landscape eucalyptus trees from adjacent properties have also expanded into the area and will also be removed. The project to remove invasives, restore native plants, and maintain habitat and erosion prevention will work in phases over a 3-year period.
