This forest dweller has swum home to spawn. She's a thirty-pound Chinook (King) salmon and she arrived in Priaire Creek this week. Did you know that salmon are a huge part of the redwood ecosystem? When she dies in this creek - she will become thirty pounds of essential nutrients. Her molecules will one day be a part of a redwood tree's canopy.

"We have become great because of the lavish use of our resources. But the time has come to inquire seriously what will happen when our forests are gone, when the coal, the iron, the oil, and the gas are exhausted, when the soils have still further impoverished and washed into the streams, polluting the rivers, denuding the fields and obstructing navigation."
- Theodore Roosevelt
