Project: San Vicente Creek Watershed Clematis Vitalba Control Project

Description: The Project will address the Clematis invasion in the watersheds by working to control it on the San Vicente Redwoods property, monitoring and documenting the success of treatment methods used, and laying the groundwork for a future phase to control it and ultimately to eradicate it from the watershed. Project will treat approximately 30 acres of Clematis multiple times over the course of three years.

Reference Number: 3600BP1796018

Implemented By: Sempervirens Fund

Objective: Objectives are to: 1) Treat approximately 30 acres of Clematis multiple times over the course of three years working towards the goal of eradication. The Project will build on previous work, addressing the infestation on a much larger scale and more aggressively than previous treatments. 2) Offer a minimum of 18 volunteers of University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC) Environmental Studies students to plant and enhance native plant regeneration in treated areas, thus fostering re-colonization of native species and increased floristic diversity. Through this program, the student volunteers will gain valuable experience in ecological stewardship and first-hand knowledge of Best Management Practices. 3) Summarize treatment procedures and recommended best management practices in a report and two-page summary brochure that the Grantee will make available on Grantee's website.
