From Ghost Town to Restored Salmon Habitat

Saturday, September 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Come out to Samuel P. Taylor State park to learn about the wonderful work SPAWN (spawnusa.org) is doing to restore the Lagunitas Creek watershed! The town of Jewel was once home to half a dozen vacation cabins built on the Lagunitas Creek floodplain in the 1930s and 40s. The town has since fallen into disrepair. Thanks to the restoration efforts of SPAWN, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and other state and local agencies, the area is now being returned to its natural state.

Hear about how we’re reconnecting the floodplain with the creek and rebuilding creekside habitat that is so critical for Central California’s endangered Coho salmon. Join Preston Brown, Director of Watershed Conservation, and Harry Mcgrath, Outreach Coordinator, as they discuss how SPAWN is restoring this watershed.

This is an ADA friendly event. The presentation is free, but park entry is $8. Feel free to explore this beautiful redwood forest before the talk!
