The intended audience for this California Riparian Restoration Handbook is anyone responsible for writing a proposal for a riparian restoration project, anyone beginning to plan and implement the project, or those responsible for compliance and mitigation monitoring of such a project. This handbook explains the elements of a site-specific riparian restoration project that must be addressed in order for a project to be successful.

This handbook demonstrates how to approach riparian restoration design from an ecological perspective specific to the project location. This handbook describes the existing ecological conditions and physical processes at the watershed level that must be considered when developing an accurate, site-specific restoration plan that will successfully meet targeted objectives, with priority given to wildlife habitat.
