Wood Innovation Grant
Granted by the U.S. Forest Service Wood Innovation Grant, several key preliminary planning and preparing steps were completed toward the realization of the Bioenergy Cluster Project.
Hat Creek Enhancement
During the last century, this 4000' stretch of the Hat Creek had been channelized into a linear ditch to accommodate for agriculture and grazing. Our design will bring the channel back to its historic valley low with increased sinuosity and flood plane connectivity.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) donated 4,491 acres at the McArthur Swamp to the Fall River Resource Conservation District (RCD), followed immediately by the RCD’s donation of a permanent conservation easement to Ducks Unlimited (DU). This newly protected acreage at McArthur Swamp is located just north of the town of McArthur in eastern Shasta County.
Burney Community Wildfire Protection Plan
The Fall River Resource Conservation District led the charge through the facilitation of a public meeting and subsequent meetings to establish the Burney Fire Safe Council.
Maps were developed to identify and prioritize critical human infrastructure, inhabited areas, high-risk areas, and natural/man-made barriers. An evacuation plan and map was provided during this stage.
