In partnership with California State Parks, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the local levee district, River Partners, and Ducks Unlimited, American Rivers is leading a restoration project that will remove sections of levee to reconnect up to 200 acres of historic floodplain and native grasslands within the park. By giving the river more room and re-connecting its floodplain, water will more frequently flood the floodplain. This provides multiple benefits including reductions in flood risk, re-establishment of native grasslands adapted to periodic flooding, groundwater recharge, and improved habitat for fish and wildlife.
