24th Annual Coho Confab
Salmonid Restoration Federation (SRF) coordinated the 24th Annual Coho Confab on September 9-11, 2022 in the South Fork Eel River watershed. The 2022 Coho Confab was held at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Buddhist Retreat Center which is a forested sanctuary at the confluence of Cedar Creek and the South Fork Eel watershed. The Coho Confab is a field symposium to learn about watershed restoration and techniques to restore and recover coho salmon populations. The Confab provides an ideal opportunity to network with other fish-centric people and to participate in field tours that highlight innovative salmon restoration practices. In 2022, SRF collaborated with several groups including California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Cal Trout, NOAA Fisheries, Stillwater Sciences, Eel River Watershed Improvement Group, Trout Unlimited, Pacific Watershed Associates, and other restoration partners.
