Botanical Field Surveys, SERAL and Cedar Ridge Fuels Project

Tuolumne County is conducting landscape restoration activities through Supplemental Project Agreements developed under a Master Stewardship Agreement with the Stanislaus National Forest. Ascent conducted botanical surveys in advance of forest restoration and fuel reduction activities to be implemented for the Social and Ecological Resilience Across the Landscape (SERAL) and Cedar Ridge Fuels projects. An Ascent botanical team conducted threatened, endangered, and sensitive (TES) and invasive plant surveys for these projects. Botanical surveys were conducted in accordance with the US Forest Service 2014 TES Plant Survey Protocol and Field Guide. The team documented, mapped, and flagged populations of TES and invasive plants in accordance with the US Forest Service 2015 TES Plant Element Occurrence Protocol and Field Guide and the US Forest Service 2014 Data Recording Protocols and Requirements for Invasive Species Survey, Inventory, and Treatment. All surveys included a search for and verification of target plant species at known, reported, or suspected locations and in all suitable habitats in the project area.
