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.
SARSAS meetings hosted by Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt are held on the fourth Monday of every month at 10 am at the Domes, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, Ca 95603. Meetings are held to one hour.
Dinner, raffle, and wine sales all benefiting SARSAS
Next Barrier Needing a Fish Ladder and Fish Screen on Auburn Ravine
The Hemphill Dam is the next target for fish passage. It is an Nevada Irrigation District Dam. NID just put a fish ladder on the Lincoln Gauging Station last November which really allowed salmon to reach the first marginal spawning gravels below Hemphill Dam. Once HH is retrofitted for fish passages, salmon will be able to reach prime spawning grounds moving 6 miles upstream to the Gold Hill Dam, another NID Dam.
