Josephine is an unincorporated locality in Sutter County. It is located south of the Sutter Buttes, southwest of Sutter, northwest of the Sutter National Wildlife Refuge, north of Progress, east of the Sacramento River, and southeast of Meridian, Lira, and Tarke. Its elevation is 36 feet.
The native plant community of Josephine is valley grassland. This means that winter flooding, extremely dry summers, and soil that tends to be somewhat alkaline make it difficult for trees and shrubs to grow. However, grasses or grasslike plants are not necessarily the dominant plants either. Many types of herbaceous plants thrive in valley grassland.
The U.S. Postal Service sometimes lists addresses in Josephine as being in Meridian, because they are both in the 95957 zip code. However, on the Yuba-Sutter Wiki, we prefer listing the more specific location Josephine.
