    Description

    Riparian habitat along California's San Joaquin River in the 25 miles between Friant Darn and Freeway 99 occurs on approximately 6 percent of its historic range. It is threatened directly and indirectly by increased urban encroachment such as residential housing, certain recreational uses, sand and gravel extraction, aquiculture, and road construction. The San Joaquin River Committee was formed in 1985 to advocate preservation and restoration of riparian habitat. The Committee works with local school districts to facilitate use of riverbottom riparian forest areas for outdoor environmental education. We recently formed a land trust called the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust to preserve land through acquisition in fee and negotiation of conservation easements. Opportunities for increasing riverbottom riparian habitat are presented by lands from which sand and gravel have been extracted.
