In early January, the US Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District (Army Corps) released a draft report outlining a proposed plan to restore 178 acres of habitat on the Lower Yuba River between Englebright Dam and the Yuba-Feather confluence. The release of the report initiated a 45-day public review period, and the Army Corps scheduled two public meetings to discuss the proposed project, answer questions and accept comments.

The Sierra Fund participated in the first public meeting on January 16 in Marysville. The second meeting, scheduled for January 22 in Sacramento, was cancelled due to the US government shutdown. The meeting was subsequently rescheduled for February 2. Written comments will be accepted through February 23. For more information on how to submit comments, click here.
