2014 Success

Grantee:  Smith River Alliance

Result: 320 acres protected

We funded Smith River Alliance’s Hurdy Gurdy Creek Property Acquisition Campaign to permanently protect the 2,000-acre Hurdygurdy Creek watershed, a key tributary of California’s Smith River, one of the crown jewels of the Wild and Scenic River System and a nationally recognized “Salmon Stronghold”. SRA reports that they have successfully transferred 320 acres of land along the Siskiyou Fork of the Smith River into the Smith River National Recreation Area for public recreation access and wildlife habitat.
