The Yuba Watershed and the Bay-Delta Plan: Interlinked Plumbing and Management

In response to the precipitous decline of native fisheries, the State of California is looking at solutions to restore some of the freshwater flows that the Delta and fish need. This process is commonly referred to as updating the Bay-Delta Plan. The current focus is on the Sacramento River and San Joaquin River, including the Yuba River. The Yuba to the Bay-Delta connection is critical for Yuba salmon because they depend on both ecosystems to survive.

SYRCL, TNF, and UC Davis Site Planning and Design Studio Tour Van Norden Meadow

On January 18, 2024, under clear skies and atop fresh snow, Tahoe National Forest and SYRCL staff introduced Van Norden Meadow (Yayalu Idteh in Washoe) to a class of third year UC Davis students studying landscape architecture. Tasked with designing a trailhead with viewing platforms and other visitor accommodations, this UC Davis class is learning how to apply place-making and problem-solving skills to a physical site while considering the complexities of field analysis, site planning, and programming.
