Document Description
The Winter Island Tidal Habitat Restoration Project is proposed by DWR to restore tidal connectivity to the interior of Winter Island to create aquatic and riparian habitat to benefit native species. Winter Island was formerly managed for duck hunting and currently receives muted tidal flows. The project will enhance up to 544 acres of tidal wetland, associated high marsh and riparian habitats benefiting listed fish species including Delta Smelt, Chinook Salmon, and Longfin Smelt and may provide enhanced nesting and foraging habitat for species such as CA black rail, saltmarsh common yellowthroat, and Suisun song sparrow.
