Project: Climate-Smart Restoration for Resilient Sonoma County Cities

Description: A multi-benefit urban greening project to restore 0.83 linear miles of degraded riparian habitat at fours sites in Sonoma County. Climate change is expected to increase drought and likely to strain groundwater availability, which may be especially problematic in Sonoma County. By sustainably managing its water resources, Sonoma County can minimize negative impacts from lowered groundwater levels and degraded water quality, provide groundwater use for residents, and important habitat for fish and wildlife (SCWA, 2015). Restored urban rivers also offer beautification to public green spaces where people live, work, and recreate.
