Piedra Blanca Stream restoration project image

The C.R.E.W. conducted habitat restoration along several miles of Piedra Blanca Creek, a fairly pristine, perennial tributary of the Sespe Creek located in the Sespe Wilderness portion of the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. The project included the restoration of riverine, riparian, and upland habitat. The work benefited Southern Steelhead Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and other important species in Piedra Blanca Creek. The WRP grant facilitated stream bank environmental restoration implemented over a 9.5 mile section adjacent to the Piedra Blanca Trail.
