CCKA Advocacy Day: SYRCL’s Impactful Dialogue with Key California Decision Makers

On March 5th Aaron Zettler-Mann, SYRCL’s Executive Director, and Traci Sheehan, SYRCL’s Policy Manager, represented SYRCL at the California Coastkeeper Alliance’s (CCKA) annual Advocacy Day, engaging in meaningful conversations with key state-level decision-makers and agencies. 

During Advocacy Day, our meetings centered around pressing issues that affect the Yuba River watershed, including water and instream flows needed for salmon and protections that ensure our rivers are swimmable, fishable, and drinkable.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Wade Crowfoot, Director of the California Natural Resources Agency, and Chuck Bonham, the Director of California Fish and Wildlife, among others, to discuss potential collaborative efforts and advocate for much needed river flows in the Yuba for the survival of salmon and our fisheries.
