Action Alert: Support Stream Protection Ordinance to Protect Coho Habitat

Action Alert: Support Stream Protection Ordinance to Protect Coho Habitat

Call the Marin Board of Supervisors!
On August 10th the Marin Board of Supervisors will take action (or not) in support of a progressive new stream forest protection ordinance to protect habitat for critically endangered coho salmon in one of the most important remaining areas left in California, the San Geronimo Valley in Marin County.

In the last 3 weeks, the Marin County Planning Commission overhauled a poorly written ordinance and took courageous steps towards streamside protection by recommending the Board of Supervisors adopt an ordinance that protects all native trees within 100-ft of streams in coho watersheds, and protects all native plants within 35-ft of these streams too.  Currently, the County allows the destruction of 5 trees every year without a permit along salmon streams, an ecologically reckless and outdated regulation.

Please take a minute to call Marin Supervisors and ask that they Support the Planning Commissions Riparian Zone Protection Ordinance that protects all native vegetation near coho streams and that you want the Board to take immediate action on Aug 10th to protect habitat for Marin’s salmon.
