Protects endangered, wild coho salmon and the habitat they need to survive in West Marin.

The Salmon Protection and Watershed Network – SPAWN – protects endangered, wild coho salmon and the forests and watersheds they need to survive in West Marin. SPAWN was initiated as part of Turtle Island Restoration Network in 1997. We engage hundreds of people each year to see and learn about the majestic endangered salmon, restore watershed habitat, raise native redwood trees, and study salmon health. With the support of thousands of activists, we are also making strides towards fish-friendly development policies to help the salmon survive and thrive. Join us today!
