Collaboration is key when it comes to Yuba River projects

I would like to thank The Union for its’ March 16 story on Yuba restoration. As reported, the Hammon Bar Riparian Restoration project on the lower Yuba River will benefit salmon, steelhead and other wildlife that depend on a healthy river and riparian zone.

Although the article suggests that this successful project was an original technique of my design, in truth, it represents the work and support of many others who deserve credit including river restoration engineers Chris Bowles and Scott McBain and other experts; and the YCWA-funded Yuba Accord River Management Team. Primary funding came from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, PG&E, Western Aggregates, the Switzer Environmental Foundation and the Bella Vista Foundation.

SYRCL is proud of its leadership role in rehabilitating the lower Yuba River and deeply appreciates the support of its partners, funders and volunteers. No single organization or individual can accomplish such work alone.
