Stewardship Overview: This is a case where there is not much for the USFS to do for this plant. It is de facto protected by its habitat preference which is steep cliff faces in a single canyon on the Angeles NF (Fish Canyon). The mouth of the canyon is heavily destructively mined and all plants or habitat is destroyed there. However, the bulk of the plants occur upstream on USFS lands. There could be some minor threats from recreational use and erosion. Also, we do not have a good population count. The main suggestion would be to monitor the plant every 5 years and include a fairly complete plant count, perhaps using binoculars to help see the plants well above line of sight on the canyon walls.
