salmon spawning

The population of wild Central California Coast coho salmon has declined more than 95 percent from historic levels, and it is now listed as endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act. The Lagunitas Creek Watershed is one of the most important waterways left for these wild coho salmon, supporting 10 to 20 percent of the surviving fish.


In order to save these salmon, SPAWN restores creekside habitat in the Lagunitas Creek Watershed with the help of hundreds of volunteers, by removing invasive species and planting native species grown locally in our native plant nursery, monitoring water quality and collecting data on the coho population in the creeks.
