Wildlife Habitat and Community Resilience on Working Lands – Roots #7
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The overall goal of this project is to enhance riparian system functioning and ecological value for wildlife and pollinators while engaging the local community in conservation. The project will increase native plant species abundance and diversity to improve and expand habitat value for a diversity of birds, mammals, amphibians, and other wildlife. Initial project phases will remove target invasive plant species, including Himalayan blackberry, from impacted riparian areas using a variety of proven non-herbicide restoration methods. The revegetation of native plant species within riparian slough areas will ensure that plant species selected will maximize survivorship, ecological, and cultural benefits. Above ground temporary irrigation will be installed where deemed necessary to improve plant establishment when slough lacks adequate water resources.
