Fish Passage Improvement 

The RCDTC is involved in multiple large-scale fish passage projects which benefit both winter-run and spring-run juvenile and adult salmonids.

Monarch and Pollinator Habitat

The RCDTC, in collaboration with Big Bluff Ranch, is participating in the Xerces Project Monarch and Pollinator Habitat Kit project. Protecting and restoring habitat is a crucial step in the conservation of western monarchs and native pollinators. 


RCDTC personnel complete annual Residual Dry Matter (RDM) monitoring and biennual vernal pools monitoring in the Coyote Creek Conservation Area west of Red Bluff. 

Wildlife Restoration and Ranching

In partnership with C&R Ranch, the RCDTC completed a habitat restoration project which created a wildlife corridor connecting a riparian corridor to a perennial reservoir located on the project site. 

Crowley Gulch 

Through a collaboration with twelve other organizations, the RCDTC restored and conserved a key wildlife habitat corridor in Cottonwood, CA while increasing the channel capacity of Crowley Gulch to handle high water flow events and encourage natural bank geometry.
