Travel across Sacramento to see three examples of large scale reforestation and mitigation projects including the Natomas Levee Improvement Project, the Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge and the Fair Oaks utility easement project.
Learn more about the conservation strategy and levee design relative to the US Army Corps of Engineers Vegetation Policy, including newly planted and preserved woodlands and tree and utility relocation. The Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge sits adjacent to heavily trafficked urban areas, yet features a wide variety of unique plant and animal species.
Planting projects at the Refuge showcase work in several environmentally-sensitive electric transmission corridors. The Fair Oaks transmission corridor stop will highlight how trees and critical transmission power lines can be compatible in the urban landscape.
