California Agricultural riparian buffers initiative Updated:09/2022

CDFW's 2006 State Wildlife Action Plan highlights the importance of restoring and managing riparian habitat, stating that no other habitat type is more critical to California's wildlife. More than 225 species depend on California's riparian habitat, including 42 at-risk species in the Central Valley. These species use riparian habitat for migrating, nesting, feeding and rearing young.  

Riparian restoration will be funded 100% by the Wildlife Conservation Board's Riparian Habitat Conservation Program (RHCP). Restoration plans will be developed by LIP biologists, RHCP and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel, and the private landowner. Restorations will be completed by local non-governmental organizations, Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs), or other government entity. These entities will be responsible for hiring all contractors to construct the restoration project including earth moving, irrigation construction, and planting native vegetation.
