Protect the Yuba River's Salmon from Dams

    1. Petition by

      American Rivers

The Yuba River is one of California’s last refuges for spring-run Chinook salmon and provides drinking and agricultural water and recreation opportunities to surrounding communities.

However, two federal dams have damaged river health and blocked access to more than 120 miles of historic salmon and steelhead habitat for 70 years.

Unless the Army Corps of Engineers mandates that fish passage be provided at these dams, the Northern Sierra’s salmon and steelhead will edge closer to extinction.

Take Action:
Tell the Army Corps to provide fish passage at the dams to help save the important salmon and steelhead runs.
