FishNet 4C is a County-based salmon protection and restoration program that brings together the Central California Coastal Counties of Mendocino, Sonoma , Marin, San Mateo , Santa Cruz and Monterey.
- Five Counties Salmonid Conservation Program (5C)
In 1997, the Counties of Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Siskiyou, and Trinity agreed to collaborate on a proactive, positive response to the federal listings of salmon as Threatened species by forming the Five Counties Salmonid Conservation Program (5C). The objectives of the Program are to seek opportunities to contribute to the long-term recovery of salmon and steelhead in Northern California by improving salmonid habitat.
- Mattole Salmon Group
The Mattole Salmon Group works toward the recovery of the native salmon populations and human communities of the Mattole River Watershed through: habitat restoration and watershed monitoring according to the latest available scientific research, community outreach and education to increase local knowledge of this unique watershed, and community building by increasing sustainable, restoration-based employment opportunities to rural residents.
- Monterey Bay Salmon & Trout Project
The Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project is a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to the restoration, conservation, and enhancement of native wild coho salmon and steelhead populations and their coastal and marine habitats from San Mateo to the south Monterey Bay area.
- Salmon Protection & Watershed Network (SPAWN)
SPAWN, the Salmon Protection And Watershed Network, works to protect endangered salmon in the Lagunitas watershed in Marin County using a multi-faceted approach involving habitat restoration, policy development, research and monitoring, citizen training, environmental education, strategic litigation, and collaboration with other organizations and agencies.
- University of California Davis Cooperative Extension Program
Since 2001, a collaborative effort has been underway to re-establish coho salmon in the Russian River in Sonoma County . Partners carefully capture, rear, and spawn coho broodstock. They then release the off-spring as young fish in select tributary streams and monitor their growth and survival until the time arrives for them to move downstream and into the Pacific Ocean .
- Point Reyes National Seashore
Point Reyes National Seashore protects a portion of the watershed necessary to ensure the safe migration and spawning of coho salmon and steelhead trout. When coho salmon and steelhead trout were placed on the threatened species list, the National Park Service initiated a five-year project to identify, evaluate, restore, and enhance coho and steelhead populations and their habitat within three West Marin parks, Point Reyes National Seashore, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Muir Woods National Monument. The Coho and Steelhead Restoration Project is focusing on Pine Gulch, Redwood, Olema, and Lagunitas creeks and their watersheds.
- Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District
SOS - Save Our Salmon - The Salmon Creek Habitat Rehabilitation Program. SOS is a cooperative effort with local landowners and resource and construction professionals working with the RCD to design and build projects that will benefit both coho salmon and people in the Salmon Creek watershed, near Bodega Bay, on the central California coast.
