Redding Riffle Restoration

Corpsmembers from the Shasta-Cascade Center work along the banks of the Sacramento River in Redding as part of a Prop 1 funded restoration and enhancement of the riparian area.

A walk to the river in Redding’s Turtle Bay is a lot easier these days. Gone are the Himalayan blackberry bushes and invasive weeds, grasses and trees.

Corpsmembers from the CCC Shasta-Cascade Center spent several weeks planting, pruning and restoring the riparian area known as a riffle. A riffle is a rocky or shallow part of a stream or river with rough water.

Thanks to this Prop 1 funded project, Redding residents and visitors will have better access to the restored section of the Sacramento River. The project received $563,982 from Prop 1 funding.
