Restoring Coho and Steelhead Salmon

Turtle Island Restoration Network mobilizes people to restore oceans, preserve rivers and streams, and protect the marine wildlife that call these blue-green waters home. Who doesn’t love salmon? This project is one of the largest restoration projects currently planned for the Lagunitas Creek Watershed. With over 1 mile of stream habitat ready to be restored, donations to this project will help the recovery of struggling endangered Coho and Steelhead salmon populations. As an added bonus, endangered wildlife such as the California freshwater shrimp and the California red-legged frogs will also benefit.
