Mapping project? Control or Eradication Project?

THIS WORKPLAN IS NOT TO EXCEED THREE PAGES SINGLE-SPACED, ONE-SIDED

INCLUDING ANSWERS TO ALL THE QUESTIONS LISTED BELOW.

1.

Work Plan. Please provide a

one page

project description giving geographic area, program goals, target species, staffing, environmental compliance, proposed approach and methodology and expected outcomes. Provide quantitative information on the proposed outcomes and what you expect to accomplish within 6 months, one year, two years, and longterm.

2.

3.

Location(s) or Geographic Extent.

Proposed invasive plant mapping and control projects must take place in Los Angeles County. Exceptions will be made for

control projects

if the site is immediately adjacent to or upstream of Los Angeles County and the control efforts will protect the County from future invasions. In this space please address the following:

A.

Is the proposed project within Los Angeles County?

If yes, please describe where the project will take place and what adjacent areas will be protected by your control effort (if any).

If no, please describe the region of Los Angeles County immediately adjacent to or downstream from your project that will be protected by your

B.

C.

control effort.

Is the proposed project adjacent to or upstream from federal open space (i.e. BLM,

NPS, USFS)?

Is the proposed project on private property?

Target Species and Impact of Removal.

Please define the invasive plant species that will be treated or mapped.

Proposals will not be scored based on invasive plant ratings, but species addressed must be listed in at least one of the following rating systems: Cal-IPC Statewide Inventory ( http://www.cal-ipc.org/ip/inventory/index.php

), the Los Angeles

Regional Invasive Plant Guide ( http://weedwatch.lasgrwc.org/Matrix_Master_20071022.pdf

), and/or the CDFA noxious weed list ( http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/phpps/ipc/weedinfo/winfo_list-pestrating.htm

).

A.

Is the proposed project controlling the leading edge of highly invasive infestations that are moving into the County?

B.

Is the proposed project targeting incipient populations that have the potential to be highly invasive in the County?

4.
