Redwoods Rising Public Scoping

Greater Praire Creek Ecosystem Restoration Project

What Is It?

The National Park Service and California Department of Parks and Recreation are beginning the planning process to continue restoration efforts in the Greater Prairie Creek watershed in Redwood National and State Parks through forest and aquatic restoration, and road removal. The project is a partnership with the NPS, CDPR, and Save The Redwoods League under the umbrella of Redwoods Rising.

Get Involved

The purpose of scoping activities is to obtain comments on the proposed project. You can download more information about the Greater Prairie Creek Restoration / Scoping Project (PDF).

Members of the public and interested organizations are encouraged to provide comments on the full spectrum of issues and concerns that should be addressed in the Draft IS/EA; to assist with defining a suitable range of alternatives; to advise on the nature and extent of potential environmental impacts; and to suggest possible protection measures that could reduce project impacts.
