Paddle with the Salmon!


 Paddle with the salmon this year on the Tuolumne River! The Stewardship Program will be sponsoring a series of expeditions that will allow you to experience one of nature's miracles, the return of the salmon. We will be paddling a 3.5 mile stretch of the Tuolumne River from La Grange to Basso Bridge. Interpretation will be provided throughout the trip so you will learn a whole lot about salmon and the riparian ecosystem that supports them.
