Riparian habitat and farmland are disappearing in the San Joaquin Valley at an alarming rate. It is estimated that urban development will consume over one million acres of farmland in the Valley by 2040 — a span of about 30 years. Untold acres of riparian habitat will also be lost. As farmland and river habitat is lost, so are the wildlife species it supports. Lost forever unless action is taken now!
Urbanization presents other threats to the Kings River. Storm water runoff finds its way to the river and, even with the best efforts to prevent it, the pollutants it contains poison the river. Contaminants from commercial processes and manufacturing also find their way to the river along with the trash from unthinking or uncaring people.
