Mitteldorf Bridge #10 Replacement
Location: Mitteldorf Preserve
Brief Narrative: Since the Soberanes Fire in 2016 and subsequent heavy winter rains damaged the property, our stewardship team has been securing permits and funding to install the new bridge. In August 2021, after salvaging plants in the affected area, completing a biological survey, and training the work crew on how to lessen impacts on biological resources, the process of removing the old bridge and installing the new one began.
The new bridge restores access to the lodge, Nature Loop Trail, and the Dewing Redwood while also improving habitat for sensitive NOAA-designated steelhead trout.
