For more than a decade, California Sea Grant’s Russian River Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring Program has been conducting broad-scale monitoring and specialized research under the leadership of Extension Specialist Mariska Obedzinski. Located in Windsor, California, we monitor native salmon and steelhead at all life stages and work closely with partners to support salmonid recovery efforts throughout the Russian River basin.
Reports and Information
Our monitoring and research is funded by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Wildlife Conservation Board, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, and California Department of Fish and Wildlife, with contributions from Sonoma Water. All of our work is made possible through the gracious support of hundreds of private landowners throughout the Russian River watershed.
