The Roy’s Pools Fish Passage and Floodplain Restoration Project involves removing the highest priority fish barrier in central California, creating and restoring approximately 5 acres of creek habitat with the construction of 0.25-mile long floodplain corridors along the former San Geronimo golf course property.

The project will provide year-round access to critical habitat for salmon, create valuable floodplain corridors for terrestrial wildlife movement, greatly increase the amount of trees for nesting birds, and will replace a failing pedestrian bridge with a new prefabricated bridge, linking trails and providing fish viewing over a wider, more complex and stable creek channel.

The project is a partnership between the California Department of Fish and Wildlife Fisheries Restoration Grant Program and NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Restoration Center.

Restoring Roy’s Pools is a FREE presentation that will take place online from 11am to 12pm on Thursday, May 7. Upon registering you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to access the webinar. Click here to register to attend this webinar.

I hope to “see” you there,
