Description    


Provided access to over 18 miles of high quality spawning habitat in the El Jaro Creek basin above Cross Creek Ranch and stabilized and restored 200 of stream bank by replacing degraded pipe-and-wire revetments and gabion baskets.

Project Benefit    


The goal of this project is to improve passage for endangered southern steelhead by providing access to over 18 miles of high quality spawning habitat in the El Jaro Creek basin, Santa Barbara County, above Cross Creek Ranch. The objective is to install 6 rock weirs to assist with fish passage, stabilize, and modify as needed, the existing fair weather crossing and to stabilize and restore 200 feet of stream bank by replacing degraded pipe-and-wire revetments and gabion baskets while re-vegetating the stream bank with native riparian plants to reduce sediment production to the stream.
