Aquatic Organism Passage Program

Ensure aquatic organism passage

Assessments confirm the ecological importance of providing passage through road-stream crossings for all native aquatic and riparian species over all of their life stages to provide for robust communities and resilience to climate change stresses. Restoration work accomplished under this program occurs on forest highways, roads, and irrigation diversions in cooperation with state and county transportation agencies, landowners and a wide range of interest groups.
