Description    


WSP engaged 48 Corpsmembers throughout coastal California to enhance anadromous watersheds through restoration and protection, community education and outreach events, recruit volunteers for hands-on restoration projects, and professional development. A portion of the project was dedicated to planning and assessment work.

Project Benefit    


WSP members conduct key assessments to understand essential aspects of Coho salmon populations and life-history including spawning surveys, snorkel surveys, seining surveys, PIT tagging, DIDSON monitoring, out-migrant trap operation, estuary/coastal monitoring, California Rapid Assessment Method assessments, restoration project monitoring, habitat assessment, and data entry and analysis. WSP members conduct work in the abundance, spatial structure, and diversity of coho, chinook, and steelhead populations. WAP members serve in local curriculums within K-8 schools and outreach events to provide presentations and educational opportunities.
