Friends of the Eel River Fund
Friends of the Eel River was established in 1995 to recover the Wild and Scenic Eel River, its fisheries, and communities.
From its grassroots beginnings, Friends of the Eel River has grown to be a principled organization guided by science and using litigation and advocacy to accomplish major victories for the river. In pursuit of their mission to recover Eel River fisheries, FOER has programs in various regions of the 3,600 square mile watershed from its headwaters to the estuary.
A core organizational focus has always been to remove the dams in the Eel River headwaters and restore fish passage to the hundreds of miles of prime spawning habitat blocked for more than a century.
This goal is closer than ever to being realized, and Friends of the Eel River is honored to serve a pivotal role in such monumental change for the river, its native fish, and our community.Donate to Friends of the Eel River Fund
