Document Description
Upon Board approval, Tulare County General Services Agency (GSA) will be applying for the Environmental Enhancement Funding Grant through the Spill Prevention and Response Office of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. GSA will be applying to remove the bamboo and cattail plants at Bartlett Park and Kings River Park. These invasive species will be removed primarily by heavy equipment, may require manual removal by workers, and any other acceptable removal practices. This project will reduce and/or eliminate the threat these plants pose to biodiversity. Additionally, cattails adversely impact the water and habitat surrounding the plants. It will also improve the appearance of the parks for park goers.
