The Sequoia National Forest has idenified 10 meadows across the forest landscape that are in critical need for repair; however, the Sequioia National Forest is limited in the resources available to complete environmental compliance and permitting necessary to move all projects into implementation phase. This Project is necessary to complete the compliance and permitting stage so projects can be implemented to improve habitat, water quality and late-season water availability for Kern River rainbow trout and Califonria golden trout at a landscape level. Additionally, habitat for mountain yellow-legged frogs will be improved in higher elevation meadows.
Objectives are to complete permitting, environmental compliance, and design work to advance the restoration of ten priority mountain meadows (encompassing over 500 total acres) in the Sequoia National Forest to implementation phase.
