Refuge staff and volunteers restored riparian areas with 7,107 trees along the Tule Elk auto tour route in the Salt Slough and the Souza and West Bear Creek Units of San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, located east of San Jose. This project will produce usable riparian habitat (cottonwood, willow and shrubs) for neotropical migratory birds, nesting and roosting sites for raptors, rookery sites for herons and egrets, and an understory for other wildlife.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
