Sacramento River Ranch, located in the Sacramento River Delta Region in Northern California integrates habitat banking for wetlands and special-status species within a diversified agricultural landscape.
  • Sacramento River Ranch Wetlands Mitigation Bank: 119 acres of wetlands at the southern end of River Ranch were created to be maintained as a wetlands bank, which filters irrigation water and provides wildlife habitat. 
  • Sacramento River Ranch Swainson's Hawk Preserve: 838 acres of irrigated pasture and field crops on the property support foraging by Swainson's Hawk. 
  • Sacramento River Ranch VELB Conservation Bank: The northern part of the property is managed as 234 acres of riparian habitat for the Valley Elderberry Longhorn Beetle. 
  • Fremont Landing Conservation Bank: A two mile stretch (96 acres) of naturally occurring floodplain along the Sacramento River was established as the first federally approved conservation bank for endangered and threatened salmon and steelhead.
