HAPPY FISH STORY, REDWOODS SURVIVE

There has been a major bureaucratic decision that could lead to demolition of four dams on the upper Klamath River and thus help salmon survive. Demolition could begin as early as 2023. The Klamath rises east of the Cascades but flows directly to the sea. The only other stream that manages that is the Columbia.

Down in Santa Cruz County the redwoods of Big Basin State Park are showing how they have survived for millions of years and individuals have lived for 2000, or more. Fire? Phooey.

Back East one conservationist is making a plea to save an island for shorebirds. Might need to ban people, our species not being too trustworthy–remember the recent Bolsa Chica drone disaster?
