Project: Restoration of Priority Meadows in the Walker Watershed Project

Description: Project will restore 40 acres of wet meadow habitat at three priority meadow sites in the Walker River watershed. The Yosemite Toad will have an enhanced breeding habitat because the project is stabilizing streambanks, arresting headcuts, filling eroding gullies, recontouring swale features, rerouting off-highway vehical paths, and creating additional depressions for the Yosemite Toad habitat. The project will decrease sediment entering the Walker River watershed and increase riparian shrub cover by 1.5 acres.
