With some barriers now removed or re-engineered, and another on the list for re-engineering this year, Salmon are lining up on the Auburn Ravine near the town of Lincoln California to eventually find their way back to their ancestral spawning habitat.
The attached video footage provided by Gold Country Films highlights how the efforts of many is making a difference, and what will be, once passage barriers are completely removed in the upper watershed.
As noted this week by a volunteer working to restore salmon habitat on the the Auburn Ravine, the following quote most certainly conveys a message of the voiceless ones:
” KEEP IN MIND….. THE WORK HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN….. SUCCESS BEGETS MORE SUCCESS…..
WE MUST NOW MAKE SURE THE HEMPHILL DAM IS MITIGATED. ..
LET’S DO IT. TOGETHER COLLABORATING WITH THE COMMUNITIES WILL BRING ABOUT MORE SUCCESS.
THE SALMON MUST PREVAIL. ”
And, I would like to add this thought as Salmon return to Auburn Ravine.
May beauty walk before us,
May beauty walk to the right of us,
May beauty walk behind us,
May beauty walk to the left of us,
May beauty walk above us,
May beauty walk below us,
May beauty be us.
