The Shasta River, a salmon-spawning tributary of the Klamath River of critical importance, is in crisis due to excessive agricultural diversions which take almost all of its cold spring water to grow low-value crops (hay for forage). Key to its revival–for salmon, other wildlife and people–is the restoration of instream flows with sufficient quantity and quality to allow for the recovery of salmon and other species. This project will work to promote and advocate for such restoration flows, and a better balance between competing uses of the Shasta’s waters, through advocacy, research and documentation, and public outreach and awareness building.
