Presentations Now Online from the Feb. 7 Water Conservation Workshop

The Water Conservation and Coho Recovery Open House on February 7, 2015 provided an opportunity for landowners and residents to learn about the The Southern Oregon Northern California (SONCC) Recovery Plan and how it will be implemented in key watersheds. This also served as an open house to provide an opportunity for residents to discuss stresses and threats to salmon, and brainstorm strategies to improve habitat conditions in order to conserve local salmon populations.

Speakers included Matt Clifford, water rights attorney with Trout Unlimited, Julie Weeder, SONCC Coho Recovery Plan Coordinator, Jane Arnold, water rights specialist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Scott Greacen of Friends of the Eel River, Adona White of the State Water Resources Control Board, and Tom Leroy of Pacific Watershed Associates. Tasha McKee of Sanctuary Forest discussed innovative water conservation efforts, pilot programs, and landowner incentives.
