Stanislaus River Restoration V

Restoration Stories

After: Buttonbush Park Restoration Over 20,000 cubic yards of fine sediment were removed, the understory was cleared, and woody habitat was added to the two side and connecting channels. Over 2,800 cubic yards of gravel were added to the Stanislaus River. Overall, project vision was to work with the local community and stakeholders to restore habitat for juvenile and adult salmonids, and to mitigate decades of mining and river regulation through floodplain and channel restoration.
