Russian River Wild Steelhead Society
The Russian River Wild Steelhead Society is a group of dedicated individuals focused on the restoration of the Russian River ecosystem.
Founded in 2009, our mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the wild Russian River Steelhead and the Russian River watershed through hands-on river restoration and enhancement projects and through education.
In partnership with the California Department of Fish and Game and the National Marine Fisheries Service, we have completed the first phase of the Russian River Large Woody Debris Program, we placed root wads up to 12-foot in diameter in the main stem Russian River between Healdsburg and Wohler Bridge.
We are on our fourth year with a classroom program, Steelhead in the Classroom, where we are educating future generations about the value of good habitat and habitat restoration. More schools than ever are taking advantage of our program with a total of 9 schools in 2013 from as far north as Willits.
Our projects are funded through local events and grants.
