Dry Creek Brush Arbor

July 5th 2017 –

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers San Francisco District and the DCR signed a 25-year lease for 27 acres downstream of the dam. The lease includes four 25-year renewals.

The Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians built the new redwood brush arbor where we host cultural celebrations for the first time since the Corps of Engineers built the dam that created Lake Sonoma in 1980.

The 27 acres run along Dry Creek where the Corps of Engineers, Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians, Sonoma County Water Agency, land owners and business have collaborated to restore habitat for Coho and Steelhead.
