Sequoia is helping Graniterock achieve reclamation goals as part of the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA) requirements for this 104-acre surface quarry by providing revegetation monitoring, performing targeted rare plant surveys, conducting erosion control monitoring, and performing invasive weed inventories.
Revegetation monitoring includes qualitative and quantitative monitoring techniques, while erosion control monitoring was performed each year during the wet season. Sequoia also provided adaptive management recommendations including consultation and direction on controlling weedy species, and information on revegetation techniques, native seed collection, and replanting strategies.
Sequoia continues to work closely with the reclamation planning team to provide biological consulting services to ensure that the project goals are met while protecting biological and fiscal resources.
