A Great Success Story

This is another article a coworker sent me about Butte Creek. This is the watershed that flows by Teresa's house and the salmon are the same salmon that I have swam with. Pretty amazing how the removal of fish barriers has completely rejuvenated a population of wild salmon. The Butte Creek run of salmon is probably the most successful restoration story I've heard of.

Last year, Teresa's brother Ben made a video of the salmon in Butte Creek.
