AFRP OVERVIEW: GET INVOLVED
The AFRP funds restoration actions, monitoring activities, special field studies, modeling studies, riparian land acquisition, and any other activity that has the potential to improve habitat and improve our scientific understanding of the life history, habitat requirements and/or ecosystem processes that support these populations of anadromous fish populations in the Central Valley. If you have a project idea, present it to your local watershed group or to any other interested or potentially affected parties in your area. Projects that have local support are most likely to receive financial assistance from the AFRP or any other restoration program. If there is no watershed group for your area, the AFRP can help you start one.
The next step is to call, write or e-mail the Habitat Restoration Coordinator for your geographic area. He or she will work with you to develop a project proposal to be integrated into the CALFED PSP process (see Project Selection Process). If the project is subsequently funded, an HRC will serve to assist in managing and overseeing project implementation.
