Plumas County Gets Grant Funds to Restore Watershed


A California grant will give Plumas County funding for habitat enhancement. The county will see a portion of the near 5 million in funding from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. The funds will go towards restoring the water cycle that supports elk populations. Crews will be installing mimics of beaver dams to hold ground water recovery. This effort will bolster the floodplain and create a better habitat for Elk and other wildlife including migratory birds. The project will be located on over 4000 acres of meadow wetlands in the upper Feather River watershed.
