Stay tuned for our summer webinar offerings!


This webinar focused on the Lagunitas Creek restoration project that was completed by the Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN), an initiative of Turtle Island Restoration Network. The project restores lost floodplains and native riparian forest to improve habitat for endangered Coho salmon, threatened steelhead trout, and numerous other wildlife species.

After learning about the details of the project, we learned about the permitting process. The project was completed using Sustainable Conservation-sponsored programmatic permits, which help accelerate the pace and scale of habitat restoration statewide.

During this webinar, Ashley Boren, Sustainable Conservation’s Executive Director, discussed California’s historic and increasingly variable weather, what we are learning from latest climate research, and how we can adapt for extremes to create a sustainable water future for agriculture, communities, and the environment.
