Merced River Restoration II

Restoration Stories


Completed in 2015, the Henderson Park Habitat Restoration Project enhanced oak-grassland upland habitat, reclaimed 15 acres of historic riparian floodplain, and returned almost 72,000 cubic yards of gravel to 4,100 linear feet of the Merced River, rehabilitating 7.2 acres of Chinook and Steelhead spawning and rearing habitat. Project partners included US Fish and Wildlife Service, Anadromous Fish Restoration Program, Merced County, and California Department of Fish and Wildlife. © Cramer Fish Science
