We’re undertaking our most ambitious habitat restoration project yet, to ensure coho salmon remain part of our ecosystem for generations to come.

The goal of the Lagunitas Creek Floodplain and Riparian Restoration Project is to re-create lost floodplains and native riparian forest for one of California’s most important populations of endangered coho salmon and threatened steelhead trout, as part of an effort to reverse the decline of the species statewide.

These actions will improve habitat for adult and juvenile coho salmon, steelhead trout, California freshwater shrimp, California red-legged frog, and a myriad of other wildlife species.

Restoration activities are occurring along a one-mile stretch of Lagunitas Creek, in West Marin County, California. Restoration activities will be followed by transplanting and nurturing native plants throughout the following winters.

Help us save Coho salmon and wildlife habitat.
