You’re invited to learn about a new project to enhance crucial habitat for native fall-run Chinook salmon and steelhead trout in the Lower American River at Upper River Bend at Ancil Hoffman Park during a Virtual Information Session on July 12 at 6 p.m.
The Ancil Hoffman area of the river is important to the survival of salmon and steelhead. A 2021 habitat enhancement near the Effie Yeaw Nature Center produced a noticeable surge in redds—underwater depressions or “nests” created by female salmonids to lay their eggs.
VIRTUAL INFORMATION SESSION: Wednesday, July 12, at 6 p.m.
- The importance of the Ancil Hoffman area to the survival of salmon and steelhead
- Results of the 2021 Habitat Project that occurred near the Effie Yeaw Nature Center
- Preview of the 2023 habitat project at Upper River Bend near the Ancil Hoffman Golf Course
- What neighbors and park visitors can expect during construction
