"The SRWC’s persistence and leadership with these experimental techniques, with the guidance of Dr. Pollock, and participation from local landowners, has been very important. By continuing to advance these techniques and learn from the regulatory process, the SRWC has helped provide California’s restoration community with a new tool for habitat improvement."
