    The Sacramento River Conservation Area Forum (Forum) works with communities, agricultural interests, landowners, organizations and agencies along the Sacramento River from Keswick to Verona to facilitate resource management and restoration efforts to be effective, balanced and sensitive to the needs of local communities. The Forum supports restoration done well and serves as a forum for sharing, a facilitator of solutions and a partner for projects that protect both the natural values of the Sacramento River and the communities it runs through.

    The Sacramento River Conservation Area Forum (SRCAF) is a non-profit organization that evolved from 1986 State of California legislation (SB1086). The legislation called for a management plan to protect, restore and enhance the fisheries and riparian habitat along the Sacramento River from Keswick Dam down river to Verona. This effort is cooperative in nature and works to ensure that habitat restoration and management addresses not only the dynamics of riparian ecosystems, but also the realities of local agricultural and recreational issues associated with land use changes occurring along the river.

    The SRCAF continues to promote and coordinate restoration related activities along the Sacramento River, develop and implement site-specific and sub-reach plans for areas within the Conservation Area, review and track projects and monitor ecosystem restoration progress within the Sacramento River Conservation Area (SRCA), and work to build a broader support and understanding of the goals of CALFED and the SB1086 Program.
