The Smith River Collaborative in Crescent City had announced a $330,526 grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to Del Norte County to implement watershed infrastructure improvements for nearly 30 miles of streams, and associated roads and trails, in the Smith River National Recreation Area.

The grant application was prepared by the U.S. Forest Service in collaboration with the Smith River Collaborative, a joint venture among the Six Rivers National Forest, Elk Valley Rancheria, Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation, Del Norte County, Del Norte Fire Safe Council, the American Forest Resource Council, and local and regional environmental groups Klamath Forest Alliance/EPIC, Smith River Alliance, the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildland Center, and Friends of Del Norte.

Most of the project components and activity will occur within the North and Middle Fork drainages.
