2020 Virtual Spring-run Chinook Symposium
SRF partnered with the Salmon River Restoration Council to host a Virtual Spring-run Chinook Symposium on July 23 and 24, 2020. This symposium consisted of two partial days of presentations. Topics included Spring Chinook genetics, the impacts of climate change, local cultural knowledge, restoration projects, historical distribution and reintroduction.
Although we missed gathering in person on the beautiful Salmon River, we so enjoyed the opportunity to connect with our colleagues from around the West Coast. Please click here for access to presentation slides and recordings from the symposium.

2020 Coho Confab Cancelled Due to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, SRF is unable to produce the Coho Confab in 2020. We are hoping to be able to produce this special event next year in the South Fork Eel River.
South Fork Eel River Low Flow Monitoring Projects
SRF has been conducting low flow monitoring in Redwood Creek in the South Fork Eel watershed since 2013. Check out our website to see project resources, the low flow trajectory, and regular updates about this project. A flipbook series of site photos is also available for viewing.
SRF started low flow monitoring on Sproul Creek in 2019 and will continue to update that webpage this summer.
