Ecologistics Podcast Episode 10: Dreaming the Salinas

Guest: Devin Best, Sponsor: Spokes for Nonprofits

Known as the "upside-down river," the Salinas River has its source in San Luis Obispo County and runs north to empty into Monterey Bay. The river and its two tributaries are dammed by three dams, creating difficulties for native steelhead trout to come upstream to spawn. Polluted with agriculture runoff and choked with invasive species, the Salinas River is one of the most degraded rivers in California. What is being done to improve the situation for the river and its inhabitants? Devin Best, Executive Director of the Upper Salinas-Las Tablas Resource Conservation District will talk about efforts to create a watershed management plan to save the river.
