Petaluma watershed’s roots run deep

CALIFORNIA – A recently-released historical study of the Petaluma River could give ecologists, scientists, land-users and local policy-makers a powerful new tool in mapping the future of the Petaluma watershed.

A broad, exhaustively thorough picture of what the watershed once looked like, the finalized report is a detailed look at the significant alterations and modifications made by Euro-American settlers of the 1800s, and generations of land-users and city-builders since then.

A joint project of the San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI) and the Sonoma Resource Conservation District, the report is titled “The Petaluma Valley Historical Hydrology and Ecology Study.”
