Project: Lower Walnut Creek Restoration Project

Description: This planning project will restore habitat for native and special-status species such as salmonids, salt marsh harvest mouse, Ridgway’s rail, and California black rail. In addition to improved habitat for fish and wildlife, the restored and enhanced wetlands will provide sustainable flood protection and increased resiliency to sea level rise and storm events. Funding will be use to prepare CEQA documents, apply for all applicable regulatory permits, develop final engineering design for restoration area and develop a Monitoring and Adaptive Management Plan.
