Rancheria Creek Invasive Blue Periwinkle Removal and Native Plant Revegetation Project

In 2004, Fish Friendly Farming program staff worked in partnership with Meyer Family Cellars, Sotoyome Resource Conservation District, and Circuit Rider Productions, Inc. to remove invasive, non-native blue periwinkle that was covering 90% of the banks of Rancheria Creek. The site was then revegetated with native trees and understory plants, including dormant willow cuttings, valley oak, coast live oak, California bay laurel, Oregon ash, white alder, buckeye, madrone, big-leaf maple, California wild rose, and snowberry.
