Plumas Audubon Society has partnered with the Greenville Rancheria, Feather River Land Trust, Feather River Resource Conservation District, and other local partners to initiate Forest Health Projects in Genesee Valley on the Heart K Ranch, and other private and public properties.
The partnership worked with residents and landowners in the Genesee Valley watershed to develop a wildfire restoration plan for a 6,100 acre pilot project area. The plan aims to build capacity to facilitate collaborative stewardship of National Forest and adjacent private lands and to develop a plan that facilitates partners to secure funding to implement restoration actions leading to job creation and business development.
In February 2017 the Sierra Nevada Conservancy funded the Genesee Valley Watershed Improvement Project through Prop 1 funds. This project involved resource surveys and preparation of environmental compliance documents for 839 acres of private and public lands in Genesee Valley.
