In 2002, Mendocino Land Trust acquired the 7,334-acre former industrial logging property and turned it over to California State Parks. Big River, home to endangered Coho Salmon and threatened Steelhead Trout, is also one of the longest undeveloped estuaries in Northern California. Since 2004, MLT’s Big River Stewards have been working to remove invasive plants, control erosion and monitor avian and aquatic resources.
