Remedying the impacts human development has had on natural landscapes is significant to the recovery of endangered species like Coho salmon, and to the natural function and sustainability of critical habitats like streams.
Not only do SPAWN’s restoration efforts directly benefit species recovery, water quality improvement, healthy watersheds and ultimately the health of our Bay Area ecosystems, wildlife and people, it facilitates hands-on community habitat restoration and volunteerism, and fosters an educated local conservation community for students, early career environmental professionals and other community members while attaining the major project goals.
For the past decade, SPAWN’s habitat restoration projects have:
Current Restoration Projects
Each year, SPAWN contributes hundreds of hours towards restoring streamside habitat in our community throughout the Lagunitas Creek Watershed – and we couldn’t do it without our volunteers!
We invite volunteers of all backgrounds (including students, families, biologists, scout groups and people from across the Bay Area) to restore and re-create riparian habitat that provides much needed shade for young salmon and trout in our local waterways.
Please visit our event calendar to see our upcoming habitat restoration events. If you are interested in more details or would like to schedule a group outing, please contact Preston Brown, our watershed conservation director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 663-8590 ext. 3.
