FROM THE GROUND UP: Managing the Salmon River Basin

A 30-minute film that illustrates the challenges to protect one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems remaining in California.


The biologically diverse and scenic Salmon River in the Klamath National Forest in Northern California has long struggled with the effects of logging and mining. This video illustrates how government agencies and local communities can work together to manage a key watershed by restoring water quality and habitat for endangered salmon, eliminating roads, and mitigating erosion. It provides a wonderful profile of positive ecosystem management.
