Fire Management Units: Highway One
HIGHWAY ONE (2,874 acres) - This unit begins immediately south of Five Brooks and runs along both sides of Highway One south to the Bolinas-Fairfax road. This unit includes the Olema Valley, which is characterized by the riparian corridors along Olema and Pine Gulch creeks and their tributaries. These waterways support coho salmon and steelhead trout. Above the riparian areas, the vegetation is dominated by annual grassland, mixed scrub, and hardwood communities. In many areas, the grasslands are grazed by cattle. This FMU supports dense stands of French broom and eucalyptus. Most of the unplanned ignitions that occur in the entire planning area result from car travel in this FMU.
