The 8 projects under Priority D restore and protect vital wildlife habitat and provide opportunities for increased access to trails and open space. Funding for this priority pays for control of non-native, invasive plants, revegetation for native species, and maintenance of previously revegetated areas. Other projects include removal of fish barriers, improvement of steelhead habitat and stabilization of eroded creek banks.
To support these and future restoration projects the District would create a comprehensive, updated database on stream conditions countywide. The District and other agencies could then use the new information to make informed decisions on where and how to use restoration dollars so they have the greatest value for wildlife.
