The Garrapata Creek Watershed Assessment and Restoration Plan was completed in July 2006. Funded through grants from the California Department of Fish and Game and the Pacific State Marine Fisheries Commission, the plan documented existing conditions and identified several restoration projects that would benefit native Steelhead Rainbow Trout and the watershed in general. This document, which is the first of its kind in Big Sur, will serve as our road map for future restoration efforts.
