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.

Project Plan

The project is occurring on properties owned and managed by Yuba County, which are located adjacent to the Plumas Lake Community. The multi-use trail will provide opportunities for pedestrians and cyclists to spend time outside and it supports connectivity under the Yuba County Bikeway Master Plan.

The habitat created by the newly established plants will provide an important link for wildlife between the Algodon Slough to the North, wetland conservation areas to the East and the Bear River and Feather River Wildlife Area to the South. The Feather River Wildlife Area and the adjacent Audubon Bobelaine Sanctuary (six and a half miles south of the project area) together comprise the largest contiguous remnant mixed riparian forest that remains in the California Central Valley.
