Forsythe Creek Upslope Road Sediment Reduction
The project implements road sediment reduction strategies from the Forsythe Creek Watershed Assessment on two sub-watersheds in Forsythe Creek, tributary to the Russian River, to improve salmonid habitat and other beneficial uses.
Forsythe Creek Upslope Road Sediment Reduction – Supplemental
The project will upgrade a wet ford crossing to a year round, engineered bridge crossing; improve water quality by controlling sediment and other pollutants from passenger and commercial vehicles travelling across the salmonid bearing stream also providing safe access to residents and emergency vehicles.
Bldg Capacity to Support Coho Recovery in the Navarro Watershed
Build local capacity for developing and implementing coho salmon recovery projects in the Navarro River watershed. The main focus of the project will be restoration of coho salmon winter habitat on private property ownerships in the Lower Navarro River, North Fork Navarro River, North Branch North Fork Navarro River, and South Branch North Fork Navarro River.
Little North Fork Big River Coho Habitat Restoration
The project will implement site specific erosion control measures to protect and improve salmonid spawing and rearing habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout in a selected section of Berry Gulch, tributary to the Little North Fork Big River.
Watershed Coordinator Program
The coordinators for the Russian River and Navarro River watersheds will meet local planning and watershed conservation goals through public outreach and project development.
Garcia River TMDL Road Assessment
A complete inventory and assessment of approximately 69 miles of private forest roads in Blue Waterhole, Pardaloe, and Inman Creeks in the Garcia River watershed.
Garcia Headwaters TMDL Implementation
The project will reduce road related sediment delivered into the Garcia River watershed from headwater streams, and update and translate into Spanish the “Handbook for Forest and Ranch Roads”.
Navarro River Headwaters TMDL Implementation
The project will upgrade 9.3 miles of unimproved ranch roads to meet TMDL sediment reduction goals, restore fish passage on 3 stream crossings, and to demonstrate 1 acre of riparian restoration in the Upper Rancheria Creek sub basin of the Navarro River Watershed.
Cooperative Forest Mgmt Plans/Large Wood Placement Stream Habitat Improvement
The project goal is the development of CA Cooperative Forest Mgmt Plans for small landowners that guide their land management practices and meets the requirements for a “Management Plan”. The goal of the Large Wood Placement Stream Habitat Improvement Projects program is to contribute to the survival and recovery of endangered anadromous salmonids by increasing habitat complexity and pool frequency.
Forsythe Creek Invasive Removal/Re-vegetation Project
The project proposes to plant a self-sustaining native vegetative cover, regionally appropriate to the habitat type, which provides a natural level of plant species diversity at an area along Forsythe Ceek.
Robinson Creek Riparian Restoration Project
The project consists of removing invasive plant species and native plant riparian restoration on 1.8 acres.
Redwood Valley Sediment Reduction Project
The purpose of this project is to reduce erosion and sediment delivery to the West Fork Russian River and enhance the riparian diversity. This will be accomplished by reconstructing the river access trail, damaged by ATV use, and remove invasive species followed by revegetation with native species.
Feliz Creek Instream Dam Modification
The project will remove a circa 1940′s dam that has become a complete fish passage barrier. The removal will provide access to approximately 14 miles of habitat.
Mill Creek Fish Passage Barrier Removal
The project will remove an undersized culvert that has a large drop at the outlet with a large scour pool and replace it with a bridge to maximize fish passage. Approximately 7.5 miles of habitat will become accessible.
Working Landscapes for Salmonid Habitat Enhancement
A collaboration with NRCS to address threats to listed salmonid habitat, water quality and water quantity. Outreach will be conducted to agricultural producers through workshops, website information, and project development about USDA-NRCS Farm Bill programs.
