Whiskeytown Logging Road Removal
This pilot project has provided an invaluable opportunity for the National Park Service staff to work with Shasta College staff in further developing restoration strategies. NPS staff have participated in the Watershed Restoration class and students and NPS staff have worked side by side in inventorying the roads, developing treatment plans, and restoring the natural landscape. The grant funding provided by the BOR has allowed the classes to perform actual road decommissioning work that will benefit the Sacramento River fisheries.
There is a tremendous potential for Whiskeytown NRA to provide a model for erosion and sediment source inventories, watershed restoration designs and road treatments to the multiple federal, state and local agencies now involved in Clear Creek and the Sacramento River.
