Projects

The Ruby Valley Conservation District works to improve and restore the natural resource benefits of the Ruby Valley. Our projects range from landscape scale conifer removal to small scale, natural process stream restoration. Look below to learn more about recent projects the RVCD has been working on.

Featured Projects

Water Quality Monitoring

Water Quality Monitoring

The RVCD has 26 water quality monitoring stations throughout the tributaries to the Lower Ruby as part of an increased effort to plan for drought in the Ruby River.


Upper Ruby Habitat Improvement Project

Upper Ruby Habitat Improvement Project

The RVCD works to control noxious weeds lacking forage in the Upper Ruby Watershed. Noxious weeds outcompete native grasses and have limited forage potential for wildlife.


Ramshorn Creek Restoration

Ramshorn Creek Restoration

The Ramshorn Creek Project worked to restore natural stream morphology and riparian/wetland habitat along approximately 4,400 liner feet of Ramshorn Creek to improve water quality.
