    Description

    In December, 1986, nearly 4,000 riparian trees and shrubs were planted on 4 acres of floodplain land adjacent to Coyote Creek in Santa Clara County, California. To document changes in wildlife habitat characteristics of the revegetation area and surrounding habitats, an intensive wildlife monitoring program was established. Techniques employed included variable radius circular plot sampling for birds and mammals, live-trapping of small mammals, reptiles and amphibians, breeding bird censuses and mist netting of birds along established transect lines. This monitoring program is a joint effort involving a non-profit research organization, a private environmental consulting firm and the local project sponsor. This paper presents a description of these monitoring techniques and summarizes some findings to date.
