New Private Lands Restoration Project with Ducks Unlimited
River Partners is collaborating with Ducks Unlimited, Inc. (DU) and Placer County Resource Conservation District to improve 46 acres of habitat on Tealbrook Farms. The property is located along Coon Creek in eastern Sutter County. Project work will restore and enhance 14 acres of wetlands, 31 acres of riparian habitat, and one acre of wetland-associated uplands. River Partners will break ground in Fall 2012, and restore flood-prone, fallow land with a variety of trees, shrubs, and understory plants. DU has identified several wildlife species that will benefits from this project, such as: American wigeon, mallard, red-tailed and red-shouldered hawks, northern harrier, Audubon’s warbler, and Lincoln’s sparrow, to name a few. The work is being funded by grants from the California Department of Fish and Game and North American Wetlands Conservation Act.
