Public Lands Day Planting Event for Salmonid Species

The Ukiah Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management is currently working on a large-scale restoration project of the Lower Garcia River and Estuary. The goal of the project is to increase juvenile salmonid rearing habitat for out-migrating smolts by, "diversifying" the floodplain to create long-term floodplain refugia and installing engineered log-jams to provide cover and increase feeding opportunities.  Salmonid species present in the estuary include, steelhead, coho, chinook and pink salmon.

The project began construction in June of this year. Post-construction efforts include planting native species throughout the restored area. As a part of the overall restoration effort we will be helping BLM to plant thousands of native plants that were grown out from local seed or salvaged during project construction. This is a beautiful location to spend Public Lands Day and we could really use your help!
