    Commission to host water resilience

    11:00 AM-2:00 PM
    08/08/2019
    California Natural Resources Building
    1416 Ninth Street, Sacramento, CA 95814

    Dear fish and wildlife stakeholder,
    You are invited to participate in the Commission’s Water Resilience Portfolio Initiative Listening Session to provide input on what

    constitutes a “climate-resilient” water portfolio for California and, specifically, for fish and wildlife. Input received will help the California Natural Resources Agency, California Environmental Protection Agency, and California Department of Food and Agriculture craft recommendations for Governor Newsom to consider later this year.

     

    The session will be held on August 8, 2019; the agenda is available at http://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=171193&inline. Background materials will be posted by August 5 to the Commission website at fgc.ca.gov/meetings/.

     

    Join the Commission and help shape a roadmap for meeting future water needs and ensuring economic and environmental water resilience through the 21st century!

    Carson and Walker Watershed Focused Meeting

    3:00 PM-5:00 PM
    08/12/2019
    Turtle Rock Park Community Center
    17300 State Route 89, Markleeville, CA 96120

    American Rivers and The Truckee River Watershed Council are generously co-hosting two meetings being convened by The Nature Conservancy, the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, the Institute for Bird Populations, Point Blue Conservation Science and the US Forest Service (Region 5). The project team would like to share information and solicit feedback on their project that focuses on beaver restoration and management, especially as it relates to the recovery of Willow flycatcher (WIFL) and other focal species, in the Desert Terminal Lakes (DTL) geography. The target audience is land managers, agency staff, conservation groups, tribal members, other relevant stakeholders and the interested public.

    The topics covered in this meeting will include beaver restoration, its relevance to riparian/meadow restoration and focal species recovery and how the Beaver Restoration Assessment Tool (BRAT) model could aid in restoration prioritization processes. The BRAT model, developed by Utah State University, predicts where and what kinds of beaver restoration would be most effective based on reliable water source, stream bank vegetation, flow and typical flood data. As part of this effort they have used the (BRAT) model to map suitable beaver habitat in the Carson, Walker, Tahoe and Truckee watersheds.

    (CARSON/WALKER RSVP HERE)

     

    Project partners will be conducting a limited number of site visits the week of these meetings to give input on what beaver restoration techniques could be utilized to restore degraded systems and improve habitat for WIFL and other focal species. If you manage a site that currently or recently has had beaver, WIFL and other focal species on it and would like to discuss arranging for a field visit, please reach out to Kate at the email address below.

     

    Please contact Kate Lundquist at kate@oaec.org with questions or to propose a site for a field visit.
