Protection, restoration and stewardship of natural resources in the Smith River watershed in California
The Smith River Alliance is a watershed organization with offices on the Smith River, near Crescent City, California. Founded in 1980, our mission is to provide for the long-term protection, restoration and stewardship of natural resources in the Smith River watershed. SRA efforts focus primarily in the Smith River watershed, which includes the Smith River National Recreation Area, 490 square miles of watershed land managed by the Six Rivers National Forest, Redwood National and State Parks, Lake Earl Wildlife Area, and acreage held by private landowners.
