Creativity, Collaboration, and Cost-Effective Solutions: Enhancing fish habitat on a regulated river, Little Truckee River below Stampede Dam, Nevada County, California

In 2011, efforts for a large-scale habitat enhancement project in this section of the Little Truckee River began, first with characterization of the system’s functional impairments, followed by development of a conceptual habitat enhancement design. 

Collaborative Partnership Fosters Adaptive Management: From TMDL implementation to Squaw Creek meadow restoration

Squaw Creek and the montane meadows of Olympic Valley are iconic of Sierra watersheds with prominent visibility as an international tourist destination. As Squaw Creek winds its way down from the Pacific Crest to the Truckee River, three landowners account for about 90% of the watershed’s land base. The protection, restoration, and enhancement of the Squaw Creek watershed warrants participatory collaboration amongst these landowners for the mutual benefit of the resource. 

Riparian and Floodplain Restoration Guided by Avian Monitoring: Reflections from the San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge

This article describes the specific ways that avian monitoring has guided the design and implementation of restoration in this region, but similar stories of partnership and adaptation can be told regarding small mammal monitoring and restoration, large-scale fundraising and leveraging, and integration of multiple overlapping conservation objectives.
