Monitoring of physical habitat conditions along and within the San Joaquin River provides information on potential needs and limitations for fisheries.
Maintaining quality habitat is paramount to a healthy river ecosystem, both in and out of the water. Below is a video illustrating efforts to improve shoreline riparian habitat through invasive species removal. The effort is the result of a partnership between the California Conservation Corps and the San Joaquin River Parkway & Conservation Trust.

Floodplain Inundation Mapping
- Five flights of aerial photos were taken during Spring 2010
- Three flights of aerial photos were taken during Spring 2011 (4/27/2011 at 5000 cfs, 6/2/2011 at 2900 cfs, 7/2011)
- Inundation Mapping results from the HEC-RAS model are presented in the Spring 2011 ATR, and atlases are below:
