Restoration Project Underway To Help Save Endangered Salmon

A Salmon restoration project is underway at the south end of Redding as part of an effort to prevent the extinction of the critically endangered Winter Run Chinook Salmon. An area known as the Kapusta Open Space, located at the end of Latona Road off Highway 273, will be closed to the public through the end of the year. A 2,150 foot long side channel connected to the Sacramento River will resemble side channels already completed at Nur-Pon Open Space, Anderson River Park and Lake California. The project is a joint effort by several state and federal agencies and the Yurok Tribe to restore a total of 47 acres of juvenile Salmon habitat and 4 acres of spawning grounds in various locations along the Sacramento River. The projects are funded by a $10 Million Central Valley Project grant.
