Meadow Restoration Projects

SYRCL has completed restoration implementation in partnership with the Tahoe National Forest on Loney Meadow, Deer Meadow, and  Beartrap Meadow. Currently, SYRCL and the Tahoe National Forest are actively working to restore Van Norden Meadow, and are in the early planning and monitoring phase for three meadows in the North Yuba Basin included in our Haskell Peak Meadows Project. These meadows all range in size, degree of degradation, and restoration need. SYRCL is working closely with the US Forest Service and researchers to gather data (volunteer with us!) in each of these meadows to make determinations about the needs of each meadow, the best method required to restore the stream channel and raise the groundwater level, and how our restoration efforts are benefiting the meadows.
