Salmonid Restoration Federation

Kerry McNamee

Kerry is intrigued by salmon and trout because to her, they are still some of the wildest and most humbling creatures that can be found in her home of Humboldt County, CA.  To Kerry, their snarled teeth, shiny scales and sharp eyes represent a timeless example of evolution and a window into the world thousands of years ago, which now is often times juxtaposed against a somewhat modern setting which Kerry also finds fascinating.  Kerry enjoys exploring, enjoying and working to protect and restore the watersheds that are so vital to salmon through her work as Projects & Stewardship Direct
