The Eel River, our neighboring river just north of the Russian, offers one of the best opportunities for wild salmon recovery on the entire west coast. The huge watershed, which drains south to north through Mendocino and Humboldt counties, has weathered decades of overfishing, logging, flooding, and drought. It has beautiful scenery, multiple forks, and supports several important industries, as with many river systems in California. Today, the Eel’s recovering wild salmon compete for water with the region’s cannabis and wine industries. This inquisitive and aesthetic film is “rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our watersheds and encourage both a rivers’ recovery and economic future.” Join us for this documentary film screening and a presentation by local experts from Sonoma Water on fisheries projects within our own Russian River and Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed.
