Project: Vegetation Management

Description: Protection and restoration of natural and developed resources by removal of invasive plant species, reduction of hazardous fire-fuel loads, and erosion protection. Invasive Plant Removal: involves areas that have been suibstantially taken over by non-native vegetation. Tasks will include removal on invasive species, which are also often a fire hazard, and replanting of the areas with native plants. Fuel Hazard Reduction: involves native vegetation (dense dy brush) areass that present a fire hazard tpo structures and the local community. Tasks will include removal of brush and other hazardouse vegetation to comply with estgablished defensible space requirements of local fire departments. Erosion reduction: involves the placement of geotextiles, planting of natives and installation of various slope stabilization features as needed in areas of high fire hazard concerns and steep slope aspects.

Implemented By: Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority

Objective: Protection and restoration of natural and developed resources by removal of invasive plant species, reduction of hazardous fire-fuel loads, and erosion protection. pending corrections to expenditures. The goal is to convert high fire hazard invasive vegetationa reas with low-fuel contributing native. the result of these efforts will create areas that have reduced fire hazards and more cover and food sources for wildlife, as well as to reduce the risk of wildfire on park lands and the potential for loss of life and property.
