Martis wetland restoration to begin


Middle Martis wetland restoration projects will take place starting Aug. 10 and last through October.

Trail access in some areas of Waddle Ranch may be disrupted for short periods. Construction crews may escort bikers and hikers through the restoration site.

The Truckee River Watershed Council is sponsoring the restoration of Middle Martis Creek with several partners and funders. The middle Martis restoration project will restore 40 acres of meadow as well as several reaches of the creek.

When completed, the project is designed to:

  • Restore wetlands on the north side of Highway 267;
  • Improve water quality by reducing of excessive erosion;
  • Preserve existing wetlands and riparian areas on south side of Highway 267;
  • Protect existing roads including Highway 267, Sawmill Flat Road, and the Waddle Ranch access road.
