Gordon Slough Vegetation Enhancement Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Cache Creek Conservancy is proposing to remove invasive plants in Gordon Slough. There is an area within the slough that is infested primarily by Himalayan blackberry, which contributes to flooding risks in the slough. Further upstream in the slough, an erosion repair project is occurring to stabilize the slough from damage that occurred in 2019. After the invasives are removed, the site will be revegetated with willows and other appropriate native plants to reestablish native habitat in the area.
