- About Us
Salmonid Restoration Federation puts on intensive field schools, workshops, and symposia to teach the fisheries restoration community about fish passage design and engineering, erosion control techniques, and bioengineering practices. SRF also hosts an annual Spring-run Chinook symposium and Coho Confab to highlight restoration and recovery efforts to restore Springers and coho salmon. The California Department of Fish & Game is our primary source of grant funding to put on these valuable trainings. Additional partners are Resource Conservation Districts, other restoration-based non-profit organizations, California tribes, and NOAA Fisheries.
Spring-run Chinook Watershed Symposium
SRF hosts an annual Salmonid Restoration Conference in a different region of California each year. The conference highlights regional and topical issues that affect salmonids. Field tours include all-day visits to dynamic, state-of-the-art restoration sites. Concurrent sessions focus on biological, physical, and policy issues that affect salmonid habitat restoration and recovery of native populations of wild fish. Our plenary session features distinguished keynote speakers including legislators, academics, watershed visionaries, and scientists.

The Coho Confab is a symposium to explore watershed restoration, learn restoration techniques to recover coho salmon populations, and to network with other fish-centric people.

SRF promotes field schools in different bioregions of the state to teach restorationists, landowners, consultants, watershed and road managers, agency personnel, tribal members, and students about technical skills that can be applied in their projects. Field school subjects include fish-friendly road and culvert practices, bioengineering techniques, instream structures, watershed and project monitoring, and other technical trainings.
