The primary purpose of this Project is to transition timberland from commercial logging to old growth, late successional habitat, and restore and reconnect the hydrology of mountain meadow ecosystems and tributary streams to the North and Middle Forks of the American River with the goals of ecological restoration, fire resiliency, and increased water production from the American River Watershed. Funding for this Project is use to support Phase 2 and Phase 3 which will restore the remaining 6,792 acres of forest to include decommissioning 20 miles of logging roads, restoration of 40 stream sites, and thinning of approximately 1,664 acres of dense young conifers including the removal of invasive conifers from 130 acres of mountain meadow.
