Pescadero Creek Restoration I

Restoration Stories

The Butano Creek Floodplain Restoration Project is a partnership of the RCD and Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST). The project, completed in fall of 2016, reconnects Butano Creek to approximately 100 acres of its floodplain and enhances natural creek function by installation of large woody debris and other restoration actions along a mile of Butano Creek. The project will hold back 150,000 tons of sediment before it gets to Pescadero marsh and will provide winter habitat for juvenile steelhead and salmon. Learn More © San Mateo RCD
