Breaking Ground in Placer County
In May 2010, River Partners broke ground in Placer County along Coon Creek, implementing comprehensive riparian restoration of 28.82 acres on private lands. Funded through Ducks Unlimited, this work is part of the American Basin Working Landscapes Project—a collaborative effort to integrate habitat protection, restoration, and enhancement for special-status species on working agricultural lands in the American Basin. When completed, this restoration project will benefit federally listed species. It will allow flood flow conveyance along this stretch of Coon Creek. Lastly, it will maintain excellent pasturage for cattle grazing operations.
