Friends of the Santa Clara River (FSCR) is a 501©3 non-profit, public interest organization dedicated to the protection, enhancement and management of the resources of the Santa Clara River, which flows approximately 100 miles from Acton, California to the Pacific Ocean. The Santa Clara is one of only two natural river systems remaining in Southern California, and was selected by American Rivers in 2005 as one of the nation's most endangered rivers. FSCR is currently working on a major habitat restoration project at our Hedrick Ranch Nature Area.
The FSCR newsletter, Watershed, is now available online, along with a selection of important articles from past editions. The current edition is Fall 2012.
We have added a page on the federally endangered southern steelhead with links to the latest National Marine Fisheries Service Biological Opinions.
FSCR would be happy to receive feedback from individuals and organizations interested in the issues surrounding natural rivers and wetland habitat, as well as views about man and his environment.
Nina Danza's book about the Santa Clara River has been reproduced online.
FSCR would like to thank Envirolink for including them on their server. Also, FSCR would invite you to visit the Santa Clarita Organization for the Planning of the Environment, the Institute for Ecological Health, Surfrider Foundation Ventura Chapter, and American Rivers for more information on the ecology and the river.
