Restoration Ecology’s final field trip of the Fall, 2016 semester was a wonderful adventure in the redwoods, looking at restoration projects aimed at restoring habitat for salmonid fishes, including chinook and coho salmon. Our hosts for the day were Sarah Phillips of the Marin Resource Conservation Department (RCD), Erik Young, a lawyer affiliated with Trout Unlimited, and Eric Ettlinger of the Marin Water District. Each of them shared with us a different perspective on the creek, and how restoration projects happen.

In the Fall Semester of 2015, Restoration Ecology students focused on envisioning sustainable goals for Copeland Creek, its inhabitants, and its surrounding environs. To learn more about this work, keep scrolling! 🙂
Look who was featured on The Presidio’s Instagram today:
Welcome to the online home of Restoration Ecology at Sonoma State University. In Fall, 2017, students are collecting baseline data about the ecology of the stretch of Copeland Creek that runs through campus, to help inform restoration of this area in the future. They are also developing proposals for restoration of the campus lakes.
