A River Conservation Ambassador
Named in honor of our co-founder, The Bernard F. Flynn Jr. Wildland Preserve has exceptional value to wildlife. River Partners designed the Preserve to serve as habitat specifically for Bald eagle, Chinook salmon, steelhead, Swainson’s hawk, valley elderberry longhorn beetle, western yellow-billed cuckoo, and willow flycatcher. The Preserve’s location 20 miles outside Chico, California is readily accessible to communities in the Sacramento Valley. The Preserve welcomes frequent recreational and educational events, from field days with students from local schools, to the Snow Goose Festival Birds of the Riparian Habitat tour. River Partners initiated restoration activities on retired farmland between the Sacramento River Flood Control Project levee and Angel Slough in 2004, and completed work in 2008.
