Central California Region


"We will never be able to restore endangered salmon populations if we don't first restore the floodplains which feed them."

Central California Director Jacob Katz, Ph.D.

Regional Goal:

Leverage floodplain science and messaging to influence policy that expedites on-the-ground infrastructural improvements to promote robust fisheries and self-sustaining populations of wild salmonids in the Central Valley by allowing fish to access and benefit from functioning floodplains.

About the Region

The Central California region is managed from our office on the Russian River in Windsor just 10 minutes north of Santa Rosa. Central Valley projects are focused on restoration and management of floodplain habitats.  The Nigiri Project on Knaggs Ranch in Yolo Bypass (Between Woodland and Sacramento) is our flag ship project for the Central Valley.
