Rock Creek Meadow Restoration and Shasta Crayfish Reintroduction
Enhancement Project


Invertebrate health can be a key indicator of the overall habitat resilience, and the Shasta Crayfish is an endangered species native to the crystal clean spring waters of the Pit River and Hat Creek drainages. The Stewardship Council funded Spring Rivers Foundation to revive and re-water a 650 foot channel in Rock Creek and restore the surrounding meadow to create a supportive environment for the Shasta crayfish. After years of preparation and testing, the crayfish were successfully moved into their new habitat in July 2019.
