The Northstar Habitat Management Plan

More examples of the Habitat Management Plan in action:

Invasive Weeds Remediation Program

Northstar implements a program to remove and monitor invasive weeds. This program entails employee training, weed inventory, weed abatement measures, collaboration with Placer County, and coordination with neighboring land owners. Northstar construction practices mandate measures to prevent the spread of invasive weeds such as the cleaning of contractor equipment and utilizing products certified as "weed free."

Annual Resort Monitoring & Maintenance

Northstar staff performs annual maintenance on resort roadways, drainage infrastructure, and ski runs. This includes improvements to roadway and stream crossings, revegetation and restoration of decommissioned trails and roadways, vegetation monitoring, and improvements for erosion control.

Closure AreaSeasonal Wildlife Closure Area

Northstar implements a wildlife closure area in Zones D and E of the resort from 4/15-7/31 to protect sensitive wildlife species. Additionally, the Schaffer Creek trail, located adjacent to the Schaffer Creek corridor, has been decomissioned to protect wildlife and water quality (right).

Annual Stream Assessments

Annual stream assessments are performed by Northstar staff to monitor and evaluate the health of stream corridors.
