2019 MSG Retreat

We recently completed our 2019 retreat, which was a great success. This year we had presentations on strategic planning (and process) from our sister organizations MRC and Sanctuary Forest, and a field trip to visit a couple of project sites. Our planned float down the river was cancelled due to high water.

Lots of engaged participation of our staff, board, and other interested members of the community. This was the first MSG retreat lead by Richard Sykes, our new executive director.

Construction of cross-channel weirs in McKee Creek

Updates on the work underway this summer on McKee Creek, in the Whitethorn area. Shown here is the construction of cross-channel weirs. The work is funded by the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife and Wildlife Conservation Board through grants to Sanctuary Forest.




Stunning Aerial Panorama

Here is a stunning panorama of the mouth of the Mattole taken recently by Thomas Dunklin. Besides being a good friend of the MSG and MRC, Thomas is a “fisheries geo-videologist”, combing his background in geology and fisheries biology to produce superb photos and videos like the one shown here. You can see more of his work at httpss://vimeo.com/todu.
