Project: Forest Health and Watershed Improvement through Noxious Weed Management

Description: This project involves Forest Service and CDFW personnel who will survey 18,000 acres year for noxious week concentrations. Under the direction of TNF and CDFW staff, California Conservation Corps (CCC) crews will remove new and established weed infestations, treating 500 acres per year for three years (1,500 acres total). Forest Service land will be hand treated, and state land will be treated with a combination of hand and/or chemical methods. Following TNF and CDFW guidelines and direction, CCC crews will spread native grass, forb, and shrub seeds on bare soils created by weed removal, seeding 150 acres per year for a total of 450 acres.
