Friends of the Eel River works toward the recovery of the Eel River, its native fisheries, and communities.
Another way in which we advocate for practices that keep the river healthy is through our work providing education and resources about California water rights. We encourage residents of the watershed to register their water rights to develop a better understanding of how much water our communities need. We also encourage all residents to develop on-site water storage, capture winter flows and rainwater, and to not pump from springs or surface water in the summer.
