Mitigation Projects

Fremont Landing Conservation Bank

Fremont Landing Conservation Bank was approved in October 2006 by the National Marine Fisheries Service (“NMFS”) to provide compensatory credits for project impacts through the preservation and restoration/creation of riparian forest and shaded riverine aquatic (SRA) habitats. The Bank is located north of Interstate 5 and immediately west of the Sacramento River and provides riparian, wetland, and open-water habitat along the Sacramento River at river mile 80 near the mouth of the Feather River. The primary goal of the Bank is to preserve, restore, and create riparian and floodplain wetland habitats on the 100-acre site which will improve special-status fisheries habitat for Central Valley Chinook salmon and steelhead and provide offsite mitigation for impacts to these species within the region.
