Secret Ravine Habitat Restoration

The Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited has been awarded an Embrace-a-Stream grant to begin work on a salmon and steelhead habitat restoration project on Secret Ravine in Roseville, CA.

Secret Ravine is a tributary of Dry Creek flowing within a few feet of Interstate 80, one of the busiest traffic corridors between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. Running for 10.5 miles through a largely urban setting, this little creek hosts populations of Endangered Species Act (ESA) Threatened Central Valley steelhead and ESA Species-of-Concern fall-run Chinook salmon. These salmonid populations have experienced a 90% decline over the past forty years, largely due to the impacts of urbanization.

Partnering with the City of Roseville, Dry Creek Conservancy, and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, SSTU's efforts will focus on a two-mile section of the creek, between East Roseville Parkway and the east end of the Sutter Medical Center. Work will include invasive plant eradication, unauthorized off-highway-vehicle trail obliteration, bank stabilization, and restoration of native vegetation.

Funding and volunteers are still being sought for this project.
