Ecological Concerns Incorporated started working with CEMEX in 2005 in accordance to their reclamation and revegetation of diverse native plant habitats of the Bonny Doon Quarries lands. A native plant salvage, seed collection, propagation and increase program has been initiated to provide site-specific plant materials for future revegetation work. Monitoring and performance standards are included to assess project performance and compliance. Revegetation maintenance will occur until planted areas are revegetated and established trees and herbaceous plants are self-sustaining. The larger goal is to maintain local plants’ genetic resources. Meeting all compliance with the California Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975, as amended (SMARA): all sections, including Section 2729 and Section 2733 as specifically designated in the draft EIR (July 2007),Santa Cruz County Mining Regulations, Section 16.54.05, and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
