CA - FS Begins Scoping on Three Projects
CALIFORNIA - FS Begins Scoping on Three Projects - Black Gulch, Borel, and Boulder
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
The Kern River Ranger District of the Sequoia National Forest and the Giant Sequoia National Monument is currently conducting scoping for three projects. Projects undergoing scoping are the Lower Kern Canyon and Greenhorn Mountains Off-Highway Vehicle Restoration Project (LKC/GHM OHV RP), the Borel Relicensing Recreation Enhancement Project (BRREP) and the Boulder Gulch OHV Restoration Project.
The Lower Kern Canyon and Greenhorn Mountains OHV Restoration Project (LKC/GHM OHV RP) is proposed to occur in three phases. The first phase will focus on decommissioning and restoration. The second phase of the LKC/GHM OHV RP focuses on improving campsites and trails. The third phase of LKC/GHM OHV RP will provide continuous monitoring and improvement.
The Borel Relicensing Recreation Enhancement Project (BRREP) proposes to develop and improve three recreation sites in the Lower Kern Canyon adjacent to the Lower Kern River, and is funded by Southern California Edison as part of an agreement which permitted the Borel Hydroelectric Project.
The Boulder Gulch OHV Restoration Project (BG OHV RP) will utilize CA State provided OHV restoration funds to restore the Boulder Gulch Day Use Area.
The District Ranger, Kern River Ranger District, Sequoia National Forest, is the official responsible for making this decision for all three of these proposals. The District Ranger will decide whether to adopt and implement the proposed action, an alternative to the proposed action, or take no action.
