C&R Ranch Habitat Restoration Project

This completed project created habitat restoration, fencing, and water feature improvements on a privately owned 330 acre ranch.

The primary objective of this habitat restoration project was the creation of a wildlife corridor to connect the existing riparian corridor found along Thomes Creek with a perennial reservoir near the center of the project area as well as with already intact blue oak woodlands and chaparral habitats in the upper portion of the project site. Native trees, shrubs, grasses and wetland plants were established using materials collected in Tehama County and elsewhere in the Northern Sacramento Valley. More specifically, project work included the installation of hedgerow plantings and related irrigation system along with plantings of woody vegetation, native grasses and emergent marsh plants.
