Multi-pronged approach to restoring estuary
Learn more about this project from our short film “Return to Abundance, Part I: Estuary Restoration”:
Restore critical habitat zones within the Eel River estuary to increase ecological resiliency to buffer sea level rise, restore and improve fish access to high quality habitats, and build on the success of The Wildlands Conservancy’s Eel River Preserve.
- Developed four alternative restoration designs for the Preserve;
- Began the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and engineering design phases of project development.
What We Will Achieve in 2016-17
- Complete the engineering designs and regulatory compliance for the preferred project design;
- Secure funding for large-scale restoration implementation.
