Our Hanson project near the town of Windsor will transform four old abandoned gravel pits into productive river floodplain and will serve as a model for future restoration projects along the Russian River, California, and the world.

This month, we focused on removing two invasive species: scarlet wisteria and arundo. Although both of these plants are beautiful ornamentals, they displace native plants and form dense clusters that can block river access.

You can help by choosing native plants for your yard and garden. They look great, save water, and are healthy habitat for pollinators and wildlife. Learn more.
