Under the umbrella of Redwoods Rising, the National Park Service, California Department of Parks and Recreation and Save the Redwoods League are beginning the process of considering various restoration efforts for the Greater Prairie Creek watershed in Redwood National and State Parks. Activities that are being considered as part of the project include forest restoration, road removal and aquatic restoration.

Scoping comments will be accepted through August 6th on the range of issues and concerns that should be addressed in the Draft Initial Study and Environmental Assessment. Scoping comments will be considered to develop a reasonable range of alternatives to advise on the breadth and magnitude of environmental impacts, and to identify possible measures that could reduce project impacts.

Scoping comments on the Greater Prairie Creek Ecosystem Restoration project can be submitted through Redwood National Park’s comment portal. EPIC staff is committed to following this project closely and participating at every stage of the planning process. EPIC’s scoping comments on the project can be viewed here.
