The Nature Conservancy and the Department of Water Resources are partnering to implement a multi-benefit program in cooperation with four Sacramento Valley GSAs: Yolo, Glenn, Colusa, and Tehama. The program seeks to create temporary shallow flooded habitat on open fields while simultaneously recharging groundwater. Please watch the recorded presentation to learn what it means to participate in the program.
