The San Mateo Resource Conservation District (RCD) seeks qualified contractors to bid on the Butano Farms Habitat Enhancement Pilot Project (Project). This Project will enhance habitat for San Francisco garter snake and California red-legged frog.

The Project consists of development and implementation of a technical approach for restoration activities to enhance habitat at Butano Farms just south of the town of Pescadero, CA. The work will integrate woody encroachment control, invasive species removal, and soil enhancements across grass and shrubland. This 4.75-acre pilot project will inform management actions across the total 65-acre section of Butano Farms and future grassland enhancement projects. This Project is carried out through a partnership between the RCD and landowner Peninsula Open Space Trust, with funding from PG&E.

A mandatory pre-bid tour will be held at the project site on July 15, 2019 at 11 a.m. Attendance at the pre-bid meeting is required. RSVP with Amy at
