The Calaveras gets some love

Check out this new six-minute documentary about the Caprini fish-passage improvement project on the Calaveras River. The video stars landowners Vince and Linda Caprini, river activist Jim Marsh, Stockton East Water District’s Scot Moody and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Donnie Ratcliff, among others.

You could skip ahead to about 3:10 to view time-lapse footage of construction.

It’s a nice tribute to a nice project — one which proves that private landowners and the government can trust each other and work together for the common good.
