Habitat Restoration on Zayante Creek

Improvement of critical fish habitat through strategic management and reintroduction of large wood in Zayante Creek.

Recently the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County and our many partners completed a multi year stream wood demonstration project along Zayante Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California.
