Bear River

Funded by a grant from the California Natural Resources Agency, this Environmental Enhancement Mitigation Program grant will focus on the community of Plumas Lake in Yuba County to create a multi-use trail.

About the Project

The Bear River Habitat Trail Project was developed through a relationship between the Sacramento Tree Foundation and Yuba County under the regional Greenprint Initiative. A proposal for the Bear River Habitat Trail Project was submitted to the California Department of Natural Resources in mid-2014 to request funding under the Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program to complete a habitat corridor along a multi-use trail directly east of the Plumas Lake community.

The Project Plan

The Bear River Habitat Trail project is occurring on properties owned and managed by Yuba County, which are located adjacent to the Plumas Lake Community. The habitat created by the newly established plants will provide an important link for wildlife. For more information or questions email our team or call 916-974-4325.
