Protect Public lands in the Eel, Trinity, Smith, Klamath, Mad and Redwood Creek Watersheds
Attend the meeting on August 29th- 1:30 to 2:30: City of Ukiah Civic Center, Council Chambers 300 Seminary Ave, Ukiah
Rep. Jared Huffman (CA-2) introduced a discussion draft bill to better protect public lands in the Eel, Trinity, Smith, Klamath, Mad and Redwood Creek watersheds. We think this discussion bill will be integral to recovering wild steelhead and salmon along California's North Coast. Please take this chance to let TU staff (email@example.com) and Representative Huffman know your ideas about how to best craft this public lands bill for the North Coast!

Support Our National Monuments!
Thank you for Taking Action!
More than 2.5 million American commented in favor of national monuments and the Antiquities Act in the 90 days leading up to the end of the comment period. Many TU members and chapters submitted comments through national and local campaigns across the USA. Read more here.
The Antiquities Act, signed into law in 1906 by Teddy Roosevelt, gives the President of the United States the authority to create national monuments from federal lands to protect significant natural, cultural, or scientific features.
On April 26, 2017, President Trump, by Executive Order 13792, has begun a review of 21 national monuments created under the Antiquities Act. Six California national monuments are subject to his review, including Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument covering over 330,780 acres of the southern Mendocino Range and within the RETU region.
As part of the review process, the public had an opportunity to submit public comments. In response, RETU developed and submitted the following comments in support of Berryessa Snow Mountain, national monuments and the Antiquities Act of 1906:

Trout in the Classroom Aquarium Build
In January, we were helping CDFW and the Sonoma Water Agency construct aquarium setups for the Trout in the Classroom program. This incredible classroom experience allows students to experience hands-on learning by observing trout eggs as they hatch and develop into alevin and then fry. They learn to appreciate science and the importance of watersheds.
