A grant to River Partners for a cooperative project with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Bella Vista Foundation to develop a plan to restore 581± acres of riparian and wetland habitat on two separate BLM-owned properties on the Sacramento River in southern Shasta County and northern Tehama County. This project will provide the environmental, engineering, and other planning necessary to make permanent infrastructure and planting improvements. The grant will provide funding to River Partners for activities necessary to develop restoration plans for the Rancho Breisgau and Jelly’s Ferry areas including analyzing soil profiles to optimize the mixture and location of restored plant species onsite. Following an initial assessment and baseline survey of the site, River Partners will develop detailed restoration plans that include irrigation infrastructure planning and planting palates for the different ecosystems and soil types identified on the property. Once the restoration plan is complete, River Partners and BLM will work in concert to obtain all necessary permits for future habitat restoration activities.
