Image description: Environmental managers with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District survey plantings along the lower American River in Sacramento, California.
After repairing riverbank erosion in 2012, the Corps planted native grasses and shrubs to return the site to its natural condition. The work is part of the Corps’ Sacramento River Bank Protection project, and is designed to reestablish riverbank habitat function for endangered fish like salmon and steelhead trout.
