Project: Advancing Meadow Restoration in the Truckee and American River Watershed

Description: Funding for the Project will be use to improve site hydrologic and ecosystem processes to provide natural benefits including groundwater storage, increased stream flows in the dry season, reduced downstream sedimentation, and enhanced critical habitat across 600 acres of Sierra Nevada Meadows.

Reference Number: 3600BP1896022

Implemented By: Truckee River Watershed Council

Objective: Objective of the Project is to improve hydrologic and ecosystem processes in the Truckee and American River watersheds to provide natural benefits Including resilience to climate change, groundwater storage in two headwaters areas, increased streamfiows in the dry season, reduced downstream sedimentation, and enhanced critical habitat for native species (particularly threatened and sensitive species: Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog, southern long-toed salamander, willow flycatcher, yellow warbler, great gray owl, and greater sandhill crane). The Project will result in the restoration of four meadows that have been degraded and no longer provide the water storage and habitat benefits they once did,
