The Eel River Recovery Project (ERRP) is a broad-based community initiative to address water conservation, nutrient pollution and ecosystem recovery. This project is operating under the umbrella of the Trees Foundation and Institute for Fisheries Resources and has an Advisory Group comprised of people from throughout the Eel River Basin. The collaborative effort to restore the Eel River is coordinated with communities, Tribes, other non-profit groups, and government agencies.
On Saturday, April 18, several ERRP volunteers counted Yellow-Legged frog egg masses in the South Fork Eel near Benbow to help determine abundance. Read the short report in Power Point.
In April, ERRP volunteers took researcher Sarah Kupferberg in a kayak to survey the river from just below Meyers Flat to above Weott. See photos on Loleta Eric's Facebook.
