Preserving and protecting Lagunitas Creek habitat – California Coho Salmon’s most important watershed.

The Lagunitas Creek Watershed that runs through Marin County, California has been identified as the most important spawning and rearing habitat left in the State for wild Coho salmon, yet critical habitat is disappearing from residential and commercial development.

Millions of dollars are being expended by federal, state and local government agencies, non-profit organizations and community members in studies, monitoring, and habitat restoration activities. Simultaneously, new threats constantly emerge from increased development pressures on privately owned parcels of land, especially along the critically important riparian habitat.

Yet, virtually no effort is currently underway to purchase remaining undeveloped parcels in the headwaters region or to create conservation easements to protect riparian habitat on these private parcels.

Help us acquire critical parcels and land easements.
