Panther Creek Conservation Easement Funded

NRLT has received funding from the California Natural Resources Agency’s Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program to expand a Port Orford cedar reserve across three privately held properties near Willow Creek, CA. Located in the upper Summit and Panther Creek drainages within the Trinity River watershed, the awarded money will fund a 160 acre project enabling connectivity of three conservation easements across 409 forested acres. The project will protect working forestlands, water quality, Pacific fisher habitat, and globally significant stands of Port Orford cedar occurring within the southern extent of their natural range. Notably, the easement properties adjoin the 1600 acre Miller Forest reserve, completed in 2012, as well as the Six Rivers National Forest. We thank the California Natural Resources Agency’s Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program for their generous funding to complete this wonderful project!
