Dave Cuneo and Gregory Guensch, Sonoma County Water Agency
This all day tour features salmonid habitat enhancement projects and monitoring programs on both private and public lands that demonstrate long term partnerships that strategically implement conservation practices within the Dry Creek Basin. We will highlight conservation strategies that address issues related to salmonid recovery and that provide long-term solutions for communities and the environment. Tour projects will highlight collaborative efforts guided by the Russian River Biological Opinion, and the Russian River Coho Salmon Captive Broodstock Program and that are implemented by agencies and landowners. Project sites are located on the mainstem of Dry Creek and includes engineered log jams, off-channel and in-channel habitat enhancements.
