Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District has been awarded $305,415 from the CA Dept. of Conservation under their Riparian Cooridor Restoration and Conservation Grant program for work in the Susanville Ranch Park.
Project funds will include installation of interpretive signage, Beaver Dam Analogs (BDAs), forest health thinning, noxious and invasive weed control, native plantings, and springhead/trough work for supplying water to cattle and wildlife. Work is planned to begin in August 2022 and continue through May 2024.
UPDATE: April 2023
In May, park visitors will begin to see in-stream work with crews working to build Beaver Dam Analogs (BDAs), along Bagwell Creek.
In June, park visitors will begin seeing thinning operations within the meadow areas along Bagwell Creek as well as in the shrubland areas on the NE side of the park. Please follow posted signage in the park to help avoid the thinning crew as they are operating.
There will also be crews working cattle trough maintenance on the west side of the meadow and installing two new troughs in the lower meadows this spring/early summer.
