Members of the local Farm Bureau and the Salt River Watershed Council (SRWC) attended a site tour of the Salt River Ecosystem Restoration Project on November 13, 2014. The tour was hosted by the Humboldt County Resource Conservation District (HCRCD) which is the lead agency on this project. Over 30 attendees met at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds in Ferndale, received a brief overview and map, and then drove to four locations along the length of newly restored Salt River. Four sites were visited including the Dillon Road Bridge, Port Kenyon, the Riverside Ranch and the tidal marsh and pasture lands near the mouth of the Salt River. Doreen Hansen, Donna Chambers and Curtis Ihle of the HCRCD gave a brief talk and answered questions at each stop. Jay Russ, current SRWC chairman, also was on hand to represent the council and an answer any questions.
