Raya Project
Project Summary

Major construction at the Raya Project is complete. This effort removed two old Arizona crossings and restored  steelhead access through the property. A single bridge was constructed over the creek.  Riparian vegetation will be planted over the next several months to help shade the corridor and keep the water cool and clean. 
Before1     Before2
Before:   The Arizona crossing is severely eroded at the downstream end, creating a deep step and waterfall impassable to migrating steelhead trout.  The crossing is also unsafe for vehicle access during heavy rainfall.   

After1     After2
After:    Carpinteria creek flows freely through the property, providing spawning habitat and migratory access.  The bridge will allow vehicles to cross in all weather conditions.
