Vegetated Waterways and Riparian Restoration


John Stephens is a fourth generation farmer in Yolo County. He has partnered with the Audubon California Landowner Stewardship Program to restore Willow Slough on his property from a drainage ditch back to a vegetated corridor with associated water quality and habitat improvements.

The Vegetated Waterways and Riparian Restoration case study, part of the California Farm Water Success Stories series, outlines the cost and benefits of riparian restoration projects.

In addition to these success stories, the Pacific Institute and other members of the California Roundtable on Water and Food Supply have launched an Interactive Database and Map which contains more than 30 case studies, including the Pacific Institute’s success stories, and is searchable by location, production type, irrigation method, and stewardship practice.
