Tenmile Creek Pilot Project

The Eel River Recovery Project won a Proposition 1 grant awarded through the California Coastal Conservancy to assist Tenmile Creek land owners with riparian restoration, gully erosion control and water conservation. Water conservation efforts are focused on the Streeter Creek and Big Rock Creek watersheds, but gully erosion control and stream-side restoration and bank repair are available to land owners in the Tenmile Creek watershed basin-wide.
