March 20, 2017 – NID is pleased to provide an interpretive sign at the Auburn Ravine Creek in Lincoln. The sign, located near the District’s Lincoln Gauging Station in Auburn Ravine Park, was established by NID at the request of the public.
The sign includes information on the types of fish and habitat in the Auburn Ravine, and information about the fish ladder, walls, rocks, chutes, and pools NID installed to enhance the regional ecosystem.
NID completed a watershed improvement project to allow greater fish migration and bring a more natural condition to the site in 2011. The Auburn Ravine Fish Passage Project drew wide support from nearby residents, fishing and environmental advocates, city and county officials, and is part of NID’s ongoing support for restoration of the Auburn Ravine.
NID recognizes our local community partners who supported the interpretive sign, including the California Department of Water Resources, Granite Bay Flycasters, Placer County, and Dry Creek Conservancy.
Assistant General Manager, Greg Jones acknowledged the value of the illustration for the local community. “We hope the new sign will inform and inspire residents and visitors to Auburn Ravine for years to come,” said Jones.
