Redwood Creek (Marin County) Restoration Rock walls

Restoration Stories

Rock walls, or “riprap,” prevent the natural movement of water along portions of Redwood Creek. A portion of the rock walls, or “riprap,” that line the creek banks upstream of Bridge 3 will be removed, and use fallen trees from the forest floor to create fish habitat. Over time, the natural movement of water will finish the job of transforming Redwood Creek from its current hardened state to a more complex, natural, and healthy stream ecosystem.
