California Department of Water Resources - Integrative Floodplain Design

The California Department of Water Resources will develop and present a class for engineers and ecologists on the appropriate use and placement of riparian vegetation in floodplain restoration projects.  The class is based on previous field research and will cover the combination of hydraulic modeling for flood assessment, as well as floodplain ecological concepts and management strategies.

Goshute Tribe - Building Tribal Wetland Protection Program

The Goshute Tribe will draw on their existing Wetland Program Plan to reach out to the Tribe’s community for support on wetland protection, and setting specific goals for wetland protection and restoration.  They will incorporate wetlands into the Tribe’s water quality standards.

Pima County Flood Control District - Charting the Wetland Health of the Lower Santa Cruz River

Pima County will develop a monitoring strategy, select indicators, determine baseline conditions and assess the effect of effluent upgrades on wetland health. 

Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe - Increasing Wetland Biodiversity and Wetland Program Planning

The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe will review their current wetland goals and strategies, and add a vegetation protocol to their wetland monitoring program.  They will improve and standardize reporting on changes in wetland functioning for wetland restoration projects. 

San Jose State University - Development of Tools to Assess Riparian Extent and Condition

SJSU will pilot the California Wetland and Riparian Area Monitoring Plan (WRAMP).  They will map all riparian resources on the Central Coast and improve the mapping tool to allow the integration of aerial imagery and tracking of riparian habitat temporal change. 

Southern California Coastal Water Research Project - California Wetland Status and Trends:  Assessing Net Change

SCCWRP will continue to develop California’s probability-based wetland mapping program, to enable the assessment of a change in California wetland extent and distribution over time (i.e.; status and trends). 

Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California - Wetland Program Plan Development

The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California will develop a Wetland Program Plan.  They will gather ideas from, and provide outreach to, the four different Washoe communities in Nevada and California regarding wetland issues.
