Fire remediation using straw wattles to prevent sediment run-off into the tributary.

Recent fires in Northern California have devastated communities. Burned houses, businesses and other structures left behind ash and debris that includes sulfates, nitrates, asbestos, and heavy metals. This toxic waste can wash into waterways during rains. It is vital for watershed health, public safety and salmon & trout populations to keep as much of this ash and debris in place until it can be properly removed or bioremediation occurs. 

There are many opportunities to volunteer today!
