Friday, August 20, 2021 to Sunday, August 22, 2021

The 23rd Annual Coho Confab on the Navarro River focused on flow enhancement planning to improve habitat conditions for coho and water supply reliability for landowners. Orientation presentations included Ridge to River: Rethinking & Retrofitting for Rehydration, by Brock Dolman, Program Director and co-director of the Water Institute, Occidental Arts and Ecology Center as well as presentations about successful flow enhancement strategies including flow augmentation, and current flow enhancement approaches that are being employed in the Navarro watershed. Field tours included tours of large wood placement projects in the Navarro and Mendocino Coast, a flow enhancement workshop and tour of water storage projects, and an outing to Ten Mile River Estuary/Floodplain Restoration Project, which is geared for coho and steelhead recovery on the Mendocino Coast.
