Aquatic Science Center - Integrate CA monitoring data for 404 permits, 401 certifications and HCPs/NCCPs

The Aquatic Science Center will integrate wildlife and aquatic resource monitoring and tracking data for 404 permits, 401 certifications and HCPs/NCCPs. They will improve the ability to track wetland impacts and health throughout California, through combining information from both types of actions.

Bishop Paiute Tribe – Wetland Program Plan Development and Achieve Core Elements

The Bishop Paiute Tribe will continue Wetland Program Plan development. They will prioritize wetland restoration locations, identify optimum wetland restoration techniques, and insert wetlands into the Tribe’s water quality standards.

East Merced Resource Conservation District – Assessment of Past Achievements and Future Directions for Vernal Pool Conservation and Mitigation

East Merced Resource Conservation District will review vernal pool condition throughout California to determine how effective current restoration and mitigation practices are. They will develop a strategy to improve these practices.

Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria – Wetland Program Plan Development

The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria will develop a Wetland Program Plan. They will work with tribal members to determine what should go into their wetland program plan. They will include Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in the discussions and provide training to tribal members and others on how to accomplish citizen science for wetlands monitoring.

Pala Tribe – Wetland Program Plan Development

The Pala Tribe will develop a Wetland Program Plan. For wetland monitoring, they will develop a Quality Assurance Plan and a Monitoring Plan. They will carry out baseline wetlands monitoring to inform program development.

Pinoleville Pomo Nation – Wetland Program Plan Development

Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy – Enhancing Regional Capacity for Wetland Project Tracking, Assessment and Reporting

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy will revise the California Wetlands Eco-Atlas that is used for wetland project tracking. They will design it so that it can accept data from both the Central Valley Joint Venture and the San Francisco Bay Joint venture.

San Jose University – Validation of Three CRAM Modules

San Jose University will validate three CRAM modules (slope wetlands, depressional wetlands, and vernal pools). They will improve the technical robustness of the California wetlands Rapid Assessment Methodology which is a keystone of the California Wetlands Protection Program.

White Mountain Apache Tribe – Wetland Program Plan Development

The White Mountain Apache Tribe will develop a Wetland Program Plan through input from the Tribe’s community. They will review previous wetland data, create new data, and train community members, including high school and college-aged youth, on the methods for data collection.

Yurok Tribe – Wetlands Program Development

The Yurok tribe will analyze wetland water quality condition to determine how to best add wetlands to the Tribe’s water quality control plan. They will initiate climate change assessment and impact modeling for the Klamath River Estuary to determine how wetlands may be impacted.
