Restoration Workshop Presentations
On April 23, 2014, the Redwood Forest Foundation, Inc. (RFFI) sponsored the first in a series of workshops at American Legion Carl Burkey Hall in Leggett, CA. The workshops focused on restoration practices, information, experiences, and examples that do, or might, apply for recovery actions in the Usal Redwood Forest (URF).
The first Restoration Workshop featured Allan Renger and Sean Gallagher of the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDF&W), who presented the results of their spawning population survey work in the Eel River watershed and the Mendocino Coast, respectively focusing in on the Usal Redwood Forest.
Also featured on April 23rd was the Mattole River Baker Creek Project with Tasha McKee (Sanctuary Forest), Sam Flanagan (Bureau of Land Management, BLM), Campbell Thompson (Mattole Salmon Group, MSG) and other key project personnel. They discussed raising the water table and creating accessible off-channel habitat for Coho and Steelhead, benefiting the Chinook trying to make it into Baker Creek.
Below are links to the presentations that took place at the workshop.
RFFI hopes to sponsor another restoration workshop in late 2014. For more information, email
