Adobe Gulch Grasslands Habitat Restoration

Share on:

GHD is playing a key role in helping the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission restore a 66 acre watershed protection area in San Mateo County known as the Adobe Gulch Grasslands.

Our team developed a Mitigation and Monitoring Plan, produced design drawings and outlined specifications to restore the site to a diverse mosaic of native grassland, oak woodland, wetland and riparian habitat for species protected under the US Endangered Species Act. This includes the California Red-Legged Frog, San Francisco Garter Snake, Mission Blue Butterfly and the Bay Checkerspot Butterfly.

Once restoration is complete, the project will feature two seasonal wetlands and will contribute to improved water quality. It will closely resemble the landscape reported by surveyors in the mid-1800s.
