Create a Buffer Zone
Riparian buffer zones are strips of native vegetation along the edge of rivers and streams. They trap excess nutrients, absorb carbon dioxide, and provide important habitat for fish and wildlife. They can also prevent the loss of farmland due to erosion. We establish collaborative partnerships with landowners to create riparian buffer zones adjacent to the Merced River. These zones do not interfere with agricultural operations and can produce dramatic visible changes in the river corridor ecosystem.
If you have property adjacent to the Merced River that can benefit from a buffer zone contact us. We will work with you to develop a plan for its creation and to find funding.
