WILD NAPA Lecture Series
Steelhead and Chinook salmon are born in freshwater, migrate to the ocean, and return to freshwater as adults to spawn. The Napa River watershed is home to both of these species and their presence and health is an indicator of our watershed’s ecological health. Many groups and individuals are actively involved in efforts to ensure the continued health of these species in Napa.
During the December edition of WILD NAPA, local expert Jonathan Koehler of the Napa County RCD explained the life cycle of these species, local efforts to restore their habitat, and results of monitoring these species in our watershed.
