Sacramento River Projects
River Partners has completed over 60 restoration projects on the Sacramento River and its tributaries. We have worked with over 100 different agency partners, landowners and community members.
These projects range in size, from 2 acres to 200 acres, and are located throughout the Sacramento River watershed, including Battle Creek, Cottonwood Creek and Butler Slough.
A Few Sacramento River Projects
Wilson Landing Unit Riparian Restoration Project (Sacramento River Wildlife Area)
This 338 acre riparian restoration project lasted from March 2007 to March 2012, and is owned by the Calif. Dept. of Fish and Game (DFG). The work was funded by the Wildlife Conservation Board. More information here.
In cooperation with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Princeton-Cordora-Glenn and Provident Irrigation Districts (PCGID-PID), River Partners secured a CALFED grant to research restoration and other options on the PCGID-PID fish screen and pumping plant on the 950 acres of the Riparian Sanctuary Unit, part of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge Llano Seco Unit. These efforts represent a major step toward allowing the Riparian Sanctuary to meet its full ecological potential, minimizing ecosystem impacts from the pumping plant and anadromous fish screen protection measures, and providing data to make sound floodplain management decisions on future sites.
