“The Yurok and Hoopa Tribes worked together to create more than a hundred acres of high quality salmon habitat on the Trinity River,” said Richard Nelson, Director of the Yurok Watershed Restoration Program. “In terms of its potential to increase fish populations for future members of both tribes, this was the most phenomenal project that we’ve ever completed.
