Happy Earth Day! To celebrate protecting the planet, join Muir Woods rangers on a walk to see the impact of conservation action. This weekend, we're spotlighting the Salmon Habitat Enhancement Project, part of the multi-year, sweeping Redwood Renewal initiative.

For generations, Muir Woods was about one thing: the redwoods. Rock walls were built in the creek to allow trail access and protect the trees from floods. Meanwhile, routine park maintenance included removing any logs that fell into the creek - as though it was unnatural for trees to fall. To no surprise, recent research shows us that those uninformed actions hurt habitat of local species like the coho salmon. So rangers took action!

Last summer, experts were in Redwood Creek to remove the rock walls and install log jams -- two key conditions for better baby fish habitat. Now that the dust has settled and the green shoots of spring are unfurling, come see the newly improved coho salmon nursery to send best wishes to the 'lil fishes.
