Restoring Salmon Habitat in the Bull Run River

We’re helping restore salmon habitat in the Bull Run Watershed! Over the past two days, 600 cubic yards of gravel have been shot from the back of a truck into the Bull Run River.

The gravel settles into the river and creates vital spawning habitat for threatened salmon. This work is a part of our plan to conserve fish and wildlife habitat in the Bull Run Watershed.

The best part? Recent data show that our conservation efforts are having a positive impact!
