Wheatfield Fork Subbasin Overview

The Wheatfield Fork Subbasin has 246 miles of “blue line” stream in a watershed area of 111.6 square miles in the middle and eastern portion of the Gualala River Watershed. The mélange of the Franciscan Complex predominates in the eastern portion of the subbasin. About 60 percent of the subbasin is categorized as high to very high landslide potential. Most of the subbasin is privately owned (166 acres of federal land), with land uses in timber production, grazing, vineyards, and some rural subdivisions.
