In late April 2018, flows from the Sacramento River came rushing in to the new Kapusta 1a side channel!
The Western Shasta Resource Conservation District (WSRCD) is a special district of the State of California and is funded entirely by grants and contracts. The district encompasses approximately 1.7 million acres bounded on the east by the watershed divide between eastern and western Shasta County; the north by the Siskiyou County line; the west by the Trinity County line; and the south by the Tehama County line. The WSRCD was formed in 1957. Since then, the RCD has grown from a small volunteer organization to a highly successful conservation district that is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of western Shasta County's natural resources. The WSRCD is staffed by people that are focused and passionate about maintaining the balance between our natural resources and our everyday living.

As part of the Kapusta 1a Side Channel Project, WSRCD staff planted native riparian plant species along the banks of the future channel.

With the spring rains and warmer temperatures, plantings at our riparian mitigation sites are starting to wake up and leaf out.
