At the north edge of our Bufferlands property, next to bustling
Interstate Highway 5, lies a showpiece wildlife sanctuary known
as Upper Beach Lake. Passing motorists probably don’t realize
that the shorebirds visible from the road enjoy this healthy
natural habitat as a result of restoration efforts done by a
coalition of public and private groups led by Regional San.
As part of the South Sacramento County Streams Project, habitats
located in four unique areas of the Bufferlands were restored
beginning in the summer of 2004. Aquatic habitat, seasonal
wetlands and upland areas all received a major facelift as part
of this joint venture with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The
noteworthy components of this habitat restoration effort included
the creation or enhancement of:
The Sacramento Constructed Wetlands Demonstration Project was a
five-year project conducted from January 1994 to December 1998.
The emphasis of the project was on describing how treatment
wetlands help remove trace metals.
