The National Park Service (NPS) has announced the availability of the Invasive Plant Management Plan/Environmental Assessment for Redwood National Park and Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area for public review and comment.
The overarching purpose of the actions evaluated in this EA is to provide a comprehensive approach for protecting natural and cultural resources on National Park Service lands from the impacts of nonnative, invasive plants.
Through the preferred alternative, the NPS would strive to enhance or refine practices such as: public outreach, collaboration with stakeholders, invasive plant detection and treatment, recordkeeping and monitoring, revegetation, adaptive management, and best management practices using an integrated invasive plant management approach.
The NPS seeks the public’s thoughtful review and comments during the comment period, which concludes on December 1, 2017. The EA is available on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website at: https://parkplanning.nps
Hard copies of the EA are available for review at park headquarters and the visitor center as well as the following local libraries:
City of Camarillo Library
Grant R. Brimhall Library
Los Angeles County Library- Agoura Hills
