Current Projects

Together, we are constantly working to care for the environment and restore the landscape of Mendocino County. Here are just a few of our current projects: 

Noyo Headwater Instream Habitat Enhancement – The addition of 30 structures from 70 logs will enhance salmonid spawning and rearing habitat within the Noyo River watershed along this 3,880-foot section of the Noyo River and Burbeck Creek.

Noyo Headwater Instream Habitat Enhancement  – 70 structures will be constructed from 160 logs on the South Fork Noyo River.  The addition of these structures will enhance salmonid spawning and rearing habitat within the watershed along this 2.1-mile section of river.

James Creek Fish Barrier Modification – This project will address a critical fish passage barrier influenced by man on the mainstem of James Creek in the Big River watershed.  By modifying and improving the bedrock cascade, we will allow coho passage to approximately 3.4 miles of prime salmonid habitat.

Noyo River Redwoods – Fuel Reduction and Forest Health Thinning  -- This project is designed to create shaded fuel breaks and to thin dense, dry fuels that have grown since heavy logging operations.  This is not a commercial timber harvest or a pre-commercial thinning.  It is strictly fuel reduction and aimed at improving forest health.

EV Charging Stations – Electric Vehicle Charging Stations will be installed at California State Parks sites and other convenient sites along the coast, near Boonville and in Willits.
