- University of California Lick Observatory Vegetation Management Project
- The proposed project is a vegetation management program to mitigate the wildfire hazard at the University of California's Lick Observatory at Mount Hamilton. The project will involve targeted brush and tree thinning using hand-operated equipment on. The University submitted an application to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in February 2005 for a grant to fund the proposed project. Final grant approved from FEMA is pending an environmental review of its action under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The brush and tree thinning would affect a total of approximately 48 acres of the 3,027-acre Lick Observatory property, in approximately 35 separate vegetation management units.
