Funding for this project will be used to develop engineered designs and environmental compliance documents that will restore ecological conditions to 2,400 feet of stream channel and floodplain habitat on 64 acres of the Trust for Public Land’s (TPL) San Geronimo Commons Property in Marin County, CA. TPL purchased the 157-acre property in 2018 to protect it as natural open space character, facilitate critical habitat restoration work for salmonids and other species, link together adjacent open spaces, and create public access opportunities.

The primary restoration goal is to create an ecosystem resilient to climate change and compatible with dynamic ecological and physical processes that form an expanded and interconnected mosaic of habitats, with specific consideration given to threatened and endangered species, wildlife connectivity, and other selected public uses. The proposed design features will address specific limiting factors for Central California Coast Coho Salmon and Central California Coast Steelhead Trout as well as enhance wildlife corridors to effectively link the Project Area to several adjacent permanently protected open space preserves. This will be the first phase of a larger, multi-phased restoration project of the entire 157-acre San Geronimo Commons Property.
