Project: Robin's Nest Fire Recovery and Habitat Restoration Project

Description: This Project will recover species of concern along a half-mile stretch of the Santa Clara River on the 51.4-acre Robin's Nest Property (Property). Within the 3-acre Project Area, the Project will remove fire-damaged debris, dumped construction debris and trash from an abandoned RV park, and remove a 250-foot-long section of a constructed RV park flood protection berm and sheet metal wall. The Project seeks to improve onsite riparian woodland, riparian scrub, and upland buffer habitat value through non-native plant eradication and establishment of native plant species.
