• A.J. Bennet for checking out the beach area
• Tom Biglione for bringing his beautiful canoe down to the river’s edge and for taking the time to pick up trash on the beach
• Laura Drath from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for bringing her wealth of knowledge about the Salmon, handouts, games and nature examples
• Kathy Kayner, who helped organize the day
Laura informed us that the Salmon that are returning to the American River are from the drought year of 2014. There is concern that the numbers may be smaller because of that. Right now, the water temperature is between 58-60 degrees. This is just right for the Chinook but not quite cold enough for the Steelhead. Steelhead like temperatures at 56 degrees or less.
At the end of the event, a sea lion swam by to say hello.
