SRF Restoration Webinar Series
SRF urges our constituency to join us in educating ourselves on systemic racism and the ways that it manifests in higher education and the sciences. We have created a page on our website to share resources that specifically address DEI in the environmental sciences. Please consider donating to our newly created DEI scholarship fund to support students from under-represented groups in the watershed restoration field.
Salmonid Recipe Cards Available
SRF and the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation collaborated on a series of educational projects this year, designed to promote sustainable seafood. These new recipe cards are available for free to the public, and we need your help distributing them! Please fill out our online form to order yours today.
Marshall Ranch Flow Enhancement Project
SRF and Stillwater Sciences have been exploring the feasibility of various streamflow enhancement opportunities in Redwood Creek, a critical tributary to the South Fork Eel River. For several years, SRF has been conducting low-flow monitoring and conducting a feasibility analysis on how to most efficiently enhance flows in Redwood Creek. SRF and Stillwater Sciences are completing designs for a 15.3 million gallon off-channel pond that would release cold-water into Redwood Creek during the long dry season. This proposed Flow Enhancement Project is now in the CEQA 30-day public comment period. To learn more about this exciting streamflow enhancement project, please visit the project webpage where you can find a project status report, fact sheet, 90% Basis of Design report, and frequently asked questions.
If you would like to write a letter of support for this project, please click here to see the logistics of the public comment period.
