Salmonid Restoration Federation
In 2022, Salmonid Restoration Federation produced the 39th Annual Salmonid Restoration Conference in Santa Cruz, California. The first two days of the conference included technical workshops and field tours. Thursday began with a half-day plenary session followed by 1.5 days of technical, biological, and policy-related concurrent sessions. This conference focused on a broad range of salmonid and watershed restoration topics of concern to restoration practitioners, watershed scientists, fisheries biologists, resource agency personnel, land-use planners, and landowners.
