Off Highway Vehicle Project (2010-2013)

On October 1, 2010, Putah Creek Council and partner Lower Putah Creek Coordinating Committee won a large grant to restore damage caused by illegal "off highway vehicle" trespass. The funds are intended to restore the integrity of habitat along the creek and prevent further trespass. 

The photo below gives you an idea of some of the abuse these riparian (stream-side) areas of Putah Creek have suffered from off-highway vehicles. Click on the photo to see more photos from additional sites to be restored under this contract. 

This is a 3-year project, and will include the installation of:

  • 19 acres of native grassland
  • 1.7 miles native plant hedgerow
  • 400 canopy trees
  • 12 gated access points to deter trespass, while still allowing legal landowner access

Funding from this project comes from the California State Parks' Off Highway Vehicle program, which is funded by license fees from off highway vehicle registration. 

The work will be accomplished at four primary sites, each of which has its own habitat enhancement and trespass deterrence plan. 

  • UC Davis---3 areas
  • Olmo Property
  • Nishikawa Property
  • City of Winters' Putah Creek Nature Park 
  • Dry Creek
