A reminder that the CRC’s Winter Rice Habitat Program Workshop will be held next Monday at the Colusa Casino. This Thursday is the deadline to register. Here’s a link to more information, including how to sign up for the workshop.
The program has $5 million in start-up funding in the current state budget. We expect this amount of funding will initially enroll nearly 142,000 acres in three-year habitat contracts.
We have been working closely with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to establish the program rules, which can be found in the department’s Public Solicitation Notice.
Here’s a link to an earlier story we posted that has additional information.
