Implementation of the Ocean Ranch Restoration Project, an 850-acre tidal marsh and wetland restoration project on the northern edge of the mouth of the Eel River. The project’s restoration goal is to restore full tidal exchange to the northern half of the Eel River Delta, thereby restoring a resilient complex of wetlands, wetland-upland transition zone, and dunes at Ocean Ranch. The Project also improves public access to the site with an improved parking area, an access road and a kayak launch site. The project is being carried out on the Ocean Ranch Unit of the Eel River Wildlife Area, owned by California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Project partners include CDFW, Ducks Unlimited the US Fish and Wildlife Service and State Coastal Conservancy.
