The Shasta River rises from springs and snow melt water just north of Mt. Shasta. It flows north and enters the Klamath River near the town of Yreka (and is entirely in California). The camera is in the water about 35 miles upstream of where the Shasta enters the Klamath, and the Klamath flows from there 180 miles to the ocean. The Nature Conservancy works to protect and enhance the Shasta River for salmon (coho and Chinook), steelhead/rainbow trout, and other native fish and wildlife. TNC works with state and federal agencies, other conservation groups, ranchers and tribes to advance conservation in the Shasta Valley and elsewhere.

Love it! Far better than any eagle cam – brings a peace and relaxation to my day so I plan on tuning in often. I was privileged to be at Big Springs Ranch in the early phases of this restoration project where the goal was to demonstrate that cows, salmon and people can coexist on one farm. Delighted to see proof that it can be done – salmon returning to this iconic place! Goes to show you just how resilient nature is. If you restore it, they will come!

The biggest evil is inequality. From the “The War on drugs” to the military-industrial complex to mass incarceration, they are all faces of inequality. The extraction industries such as oil, fossil fuels, Big Timber and mining tend to enslave poor and working people. They are pitted against each other through class and race. It is the myth that humans are separate from nature that is the root of all the evils.
