Building Wildlife-Friendly Resilience in Working Landscapes - Roots 37
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The goals of the project are to increase riparian habitat, sequester carbon, reduce erosion, and engage the local community in conservation practices and restoration science. The project would include the establishment of native (mostly) woody vegetation along approximately 1,200 feet of channel length. The long-term revegetation goal is to have overstory complexity with areas of closed and open canopy. This project will enhance wildlife habitat connectivity for a diversity of birds, mammals, amphibians, and other wildlife. It will provide thermal refugia and build upon existing resiliency. The plant palette will reduce the vulnerability of wildlife to pheonological mismatches by increasing the number of months and the amount of resources (cover, food) that are available. WCB Project Tracker ID: 2022065.
