Carmel River Floodplain Project

Rancho Cañada Floodplain Restoration Project Virtual Community Meeting 

Come out and learn about a new project to restore the Carmel River! The District in collaboration with numerous federal, state, and local government agencies and non-profits is beginning the process to restore migration and spawning habitat for steelhead at a new location in the Carmel River watershed. The project site is on a portion of the former Rancho Cañada Golf Club property that was conveyed to the District in 2018 by The Trust for Public Land. The site is approximately 185 acres in size and spans both banks of the Carmel River. The overall goal of the project is to restore and enhance floodplain connectivity and channel processes that will foster sustainable riparian and salmonid habitat along the Carmel River, while being compatible with current and future public access at the site.

At this initial outreach meeting, join neighbors and community members to learn about the project and ask questions and/or provide feedback. Additional opportunities to provide comments will occur at a later date.
