Mission Statement: to return salmon and steelhead to the entire length of the Auburn Ravine
SARSAS is trying to do with one stream, the Auburn Ravine, what must be done to all streams and rivers on the entire West Coast and that is to make the entire length of the ravine navigable for Anadromous Fish.
The health and well-being of Salmon is directly linked to that of people. If we improve the health and well-being of Salmon, we improve the health and well-being of mankind and therefore ourselves.
Salmon are as resilient and adaptive as humans; when they can no longer adapt, neither can mankind. They need our help....NOW.

How Wolves Change Rivers
We never really know how fragile and delicate our ecosystem is until we can see something like this happen.
In 1995. wolves were reintroduced back into Yellowstone National Park after almost a 70 years absence from the area. What happened next astounded researchers, who soon discovered that areas once devastated by an overabundant deer population soon began to thrive again. The wolves hunting reformed the deer population's behavior, which caused the forestry to flourish. This in turn caused birds, beavers, and other animal populations to thrive.
This in turn led to the most astonishing discovery: the wolves has caused the rivers to change. The patterns, the flow, and the river behavior all began to adapt to this new ecosystem that was created because the wolves were present.
