Removing a Dam, Restoring a Watershed


This video was produced by Resources Legacy Fund.

In September 2021, a defunct, century-old dam was removed from Mill Creek, in the San Vicente watershed, inland from Davenport, CA. This moment capped a decade of restoration efforts in the watershed at the southern end of San Vicente Redwoods, to bring back Coho salmon and improve redwood forest resiliency. Restoring the watershed has also helped the Amah Mutsun tribal band re-establish their relationship to the land and to their history. Their partnership and research deepens our understanding of what stewardship means, for forests, for water, and for everyone. We invite you to hear from the many voices of the Mill Creek dam story in the video and read more about the dam removal here.

We believe wild and thriving redwood forests can flourish again from Silicon Valley to the Pacific Ocean. With your help, we can establish a large, interconnected, and protected network of healthy trees and streams, stretching across public and private lands. Learn more.
