THREE MEADOWS RESTORATION
This project seeks to complete the planning, assessment and permitting necessary to restore the natural functioning of three meadows, “High Onion” meadow, Upper Onion Valley, and Tyler meadow. When restored, these meadows would have significant ecosystem value as they provide important suitable habitat for the Sierra Nevada Yellow-legged Frog a federally endangered species.

The Amador RCD is working with the El Dorado National Forest to restore these three meadows. The project implementation was completed in the Summer of 2021.
