WALK, RUN, BIKE, BOAT, DANCE, SING, RIDE and PRAY to Restore the Salmon – And bring them home

The Winter-Run Chinook Salmon are on the verge of extinction.  Years of drought and water mismanagement have devastated their once thriving populations.  But, there is hope.  We have a chance this year to do something that has never been done. We can bring our Sacred Salmon (Nur) home.

The Winnemem Wintu Salmon Restoration Plan is in motion and with your help we can make that a reality. We need to raise $85,000 dollars by the end of June this year for the first phase of the Restoration Plan. Help us by donating here:

Press Release

Run 4 Salmon Welcomes You

These pages and event are inspired by the Winnemem Wintu Tribe and the determination to bring their ancestral Salmon back home from New Zealand, so they may once again thrive in their historical spawning grounds and habitat on the McCloud River.

The California Winter-run Chinook are on the verge of extinction, and could be lost forever. Dams, water diversions, poor water management, and now climate change have rapidly depleted numbers. Only 5% returned to spawn in 2014, and only 1% returned to spawn in 2015. In 2016, the numbers were a little better but they are not good. However, there is a glimmer of hope. The Winter-run Chinook from the McCloud River still thrive in their waiting place-the rivers of New Zealand. Join the journey. Read on. Become a part of the effort to save the Salmon.

A Prayerful Journey

The Run4Salmon 2017 will take place September 9th through September 23rd
