Endangered Coho Salmon Re-released into Redwood Creek at Muir Beach

To give a boost to endangered coho salmon in the Redwood Creek Watershed, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife—and staff and volunteers from a handful of supporting agencies (including the Parks Conservancy)—returned 106 hatchery-reared adult fish to the creek at Muir Beach on December 8. High water levels and steady rain augur a hopeful future for these coho, which are expected to spawn in the very waters where they were born. Watch the video to see the salmonids’ happy homecoming.
