Beale Air Force Base Vernal Pool Restoration Monitoring

Beale Air Force Base, Yuba County, California

Foothill Associates provided vernal pool hydrology, fairy shrimp, and vertebrate monitoring, as well as floristic data collection and reporting for the final five years of monitoring (years 6-10) of created and restored vernal pools on Beale Air Force Base. Biologists visited the site during the wet season to perform hydrologic monitoring which consisted of taking depths of inundation in monitored wetlands, and taking a photograph of each wetland as part of the hydrologic conditions documentation. Foothill Associates provided monthly status updates on work progress and annual summary reports upon conclusion of annual monitoring.
