Works for the recovery of the Wild and Scenic Eel River, its fisheries, and communities.

This is truly a critical time for the Eel River. We have the opportunity to remove the two dams and out of basin diversion on the upper mainstem Eel. Efforts to develop a more ecologically viable cannabis industry and remedy the threats that a crumbling freight rail poses to the Eel River canyon are also at important junctures. Despite the stressors and uncertainties of climate change, scientists generally agree that the Eel River holds perhaps the West’s greatest promise for salmonid recovery – IF local populations can survive the next few years.
