The downtown waterway of Secret Ravine Creek in Roseville, Calif. has seen negative impacts from nearby urban development, but it's getting some help.
A group called the Dry Creek Conservancy is removing physical barriers in an attempt to give the fall-run fish a clear path to their spawning grounds. They got some help in the form of a $150,000 grant from the California Department of Water Resources, according to UPI.com. They're hurrying, because the fall fish should arrive any day now. Said the Conservancy's director Greg Bates: "I don't think there has been a project like this in the Sacramento metro area. It's pretty exciting." – Rick Bach
