Document Description
CDFW's Cannabis Restoration Grant Program awarded SRF a grant (Agreement #Q2191201) for the Redwood Creek, SF Eel Watershed Enhancement (Project). The Project will assist cannabis cultivators design and permit multiple forest thinning pilot projects with the goal of reducing evapotranspiration and enhance dry season streamflows. The forest thinning will serve as a pilot project to guide future forest management efforts with the specific objective of better defining the nexus to flow enhancement benefits. The project team will coordinate with landowners to seek input and identify forest thinning opportunities and constraints with a focus on flow enhancement benefits. The Project team will develop a preliminary study plan and opportunities and constraints. Based on initial findings and Study Plan, characterization of the thinning sites will be conducted, including the following assessments: timber, botanical, wildlife, cultural resources, hydrology, and geology. Findings will be summarized in reports that guide and support subsequent project phases. The project will also include a robust monitoring component.
