The overall purpose of the project is to establish native vegetation for the benefit of wildlife and citizens of Woodland. The plantings will improve habitat and food sources for wildlife, and improve aesthetics, wildlife viewing, and along with the interpretive signage, provide education opportunities for citizens.
Start date: May 2010
End date: On-Going
The Project is a cooperative agreement between Caltrans and the Yolo County RCD. This project consists of planting native trees, shrubs, and grasses at six interchanges along Interstate 5 in Yolo County. The plantings will be maintained for a 3 year period.
Start date: Nov. 24, 2008
The Yolo Solano Conservation Partnership Grant was an extensive partnership effort across 2 counties and 9 local organizations. This partnership was born out of commitment by the project participants to the idea that agricultural landscapes play an important role in providing native species with areas for food, shelter and reproduction and that these same lands can play an important role in species recovery.
Start Date: September 2007
End Date: March 2012
The Yolo County RCD worked with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to establish native plants at several Interstate interchanges in Yolo County.
Start Date: July 15, 2005
End Date: June 2009
Considerable effort and funding has already been directed towards managing invasive species infestations throughout much of the watershed. The 33 mile middle stretch between the Yolo-Colusa County line and the Capay Dam not only compromises the wildlife values and stability of the creek banks in Capay Valley, but also threatens the viability of the control work on the lower Cache Creek by serving as a nursery of seeds, stems and rhizomes to re-infest sites downstream.
Start Date: November 2005
End Date: April 2011
The levee revegetation program was an opportunity to demonstrate that establishing native grasses, rushes and sedges ion levee banks and drainage ditches is a viable alternative to the traditional management of these areas by spraying and disking. By establishing specific vegetation in these locations, the anticipated effects are improved water quality, increased wildlife habitat, reduced soil erosion, and noxious weed suppression.
Start Date: February 2010
