A great day was had recently by friends of CalTrout visiting fish passage projects in San Diego and Orange County; these projects are destined to remove migration barriers for endangered Southern steelhead.
This 2021 Gala trip included a guided tour by CalTrout’s Director Sandra Jacobson and Sr. Project Manager Russell Marlow on the Santa Margarita River and Trabuco Creek. The tour group included Sora, Matt, Tina, James, Emily and Todd who learned about steelhead recovery in Southern California, local river ecology, and solutions for reconnecting habitat in an urban environment.
Folks enjoyed a cool hike on a 90 degree day in November, seeing the fish passage sites, and it was all followed by dinner at the classic El Adobe de Capistrano to cap the day off.
