In 2011 and 2012 SYRCL implemented the first habitat restoration project to ever occur on the lower Yuba River. SYRCL planted over 6,000 willow and cottonwood species to groundwater depth on Hammon Bar with the goal of creating diverse riparian vegetation that will enhance fish habitat. Below is a graph of willow and cottonwood survivorship from 2014- 2016.
Interested in seeing the project close-up? Join us for 2017 Hammon Bar Monitoring!
We will be monitoring on the following dates:
- Wednesday, May 10 – Friday, May 11th
