Watershed Overview

Current & Past RCD Programs:

On-the-Ground Projects

In partnership with riparian landowners in the Guerneville North watershed, the RCD has undertaken a number of projects to enhance riparian and instream habitat and stabilize eroding streambanks along the Russian River and its tributaries. Examples include removal of a fish passage barrier on lower Porter Creek that took place in 2011, and a planned project to install a combination of 20 large wood and boulder structures in Porter Creek in order to enhance pools and create better habitat for fish and other aquatic organisms.
