CRC Providing a New Habitat Assessment Service

CRC Providing a New Habitat Assessment Service

We are pleased to now offer a free habitat assessment service to our members. This service is designed for growers that are interested in increasing the wildlife value of their properties. The Habitat Assessment Service is outlined below.  

Interested growers can reach out to Luke Matthews, Wildlife Programs Manager at the CRC, and schedule a site visit. During the visit, growers will need to provide us a tour of the property, highlighting any specific fields or areas of the farm that they would like to enhance for wildlife. In addition to the property tour, we will ask a series of basic questions to better understand the ultimate goal and species of interest to the grower. 

Based on the goals and objectives of the grower in conjunction with the biological evaluation of the property, we will provide the grower with his/her options. These options may include small scale enhancement projects that can be done by the grower or matching the grower up to preexisting programs and funding through state, federal, or non-profit programs that are designed to assist growers or landowners. 

To find out more about this new opportunity, or to schedule a site, visit please contact Luke Matthews directly at lmatthews@calrice.org or (916) 607-8988.
