California’s Hill Slough Restoration Project complete

After years of planning and fundraising, the 649-acre Hill Slough Restoration Project was recently completed by Ducks Unlimited, in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“DU was brought into the tidal marsh restoration project in 2012 and finalizing the design and getting it through construction was no small feat,” said DU Regional Biologist Aaron Will. “The project helped raise Grizzly Island Road, the main entrance to Suisun Marsh, more than five feet over mucky soils, building access berms under Pacific Gas & Electric powerlines and re-enforcing a levee to protect a marina.”
