Objectifs
A 2700 acre parcel of land encompassing a portion of the San Felipe Creek watershed was recently acquired by Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The goal of this project is to establish reference sites for long-term ecological monitoring and to initiate the collection of baseline survey data on invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, fish, soil moisture and riparian vegetation at these sites.

Descriptif
These sites and the associated data will provide an objective basis for developing management recommendations and assessing the impacts of management actions. 1. The PI will identify and establish discrete study sites within the San Felipe watershed that are appropriate for ongoing monitoring. The exact location of each reference site will be incorporated into a database. 2. The PI will initiate baseline field surveys as the references sites. The survey data will focus on species occurrence and relative abundance. Wherever possible and appropriate, quantitative approaches will be used so that future changes in occurrence and abundance can be statistically identified.
