Eel River Estuary

The Eel River estuary is a place of tremendous biological diversity. Its mosaic of tidal flats, sloughs, marshes, and seasonal wetlands supports hundreds of thousands of resident and migratory waterfowl, as well as important habitat for coho and Chinook salmon, steelhead and coastal cutthroat trout. Western Rivers Conservancy's efforts in the Eel River estuary will help restore 440 acres of tidal wetlands.
