Trinity River Restoration Program

Trinity River, California

The Trinity River Restoration Program is a partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to support local and regional on-the-ground actions that reduce fine sediment delivery or improve habitat connectivity in degraded watersheds in the Trinity Basin.


Reclamation is required to support the Program pursuant to the Record of Decision – Trinity River Mainstem Fishery Restoration Final Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report issued by the Department of the Interior on December 19, 2000. 

In 2022, NFWF and Reclamation announced three awards totaling more than $800,000 to fund habitat restoration activities within tributaries of the Trinity River between Lewiston Dam and Weitchpec, including the South Fork Trinity River and its tributaries. We will award an additional $1.4 million in grant funding through 2026. NFWF will solicit a new round of grant proposals in winter 2023.
