Project Details

What We Need
  • A high-resolution digital version of an illustration that can be used across multiple channels (web, print, and/or merchandising)
Additional Details

We need someone who could create about 12 illustrations for a children's book about Salmon. The art work would consist of pictorial images of salmon in various situations like trying to jump over a dam, digging a nest in the stream bed, hunting for food in the ocean, etc. We have the text that we would like to use. We need someone who could create the art work.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have the text that we'd like to use., which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have examples of the type of illustrations that might be good ., and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to reach a much larger community of supporters. Proceeds from the sale of the book would be used to fund environmental projects of nonprofit groups.

Protecting and enhancing the health of our watersheds is a long term effort. We need to engage young people. Parents who read to their children about Salmon are more likely to participate in and support our work.

About The Org

Friends of Auburn Ravine
Our Mission

Friends of Auburn Ravine seeks to improve the health of our local watersheds in western Placer and southern Sutter Counties. Our coordinated/collaborative process is based on information obtained from scientific studies and reliable documented observations. We apply the concept of reconciliation ecology to maintain and improve the diversity of wildlife in such a way that human uses of the landscape can continue and sustainable solutions can be developed for the benefit of all.

What We Do

Our present projects include:
Analyzing water diversions for practical, cost-effective modifications to maintain efficient water delivery to agriculture, and improve salmon migration.
Identifying floodplain re-connection opportunities to reduce flood risk, and increase rainy-season habitat for juvenile salmon and other wildlife.
Operation of a video system to provide a scientific basis for habitat improvement proposals by counting
salmon and steelhead each season as they migrate up Auburn Ravine to spawn.
A DNA study to establish the genetic heritage of Auburn Ravine salmon.
Supporting a project to replace Hemphill Dam with a new system that will allow continued water
deliveries, and ensure unimpeded passage for salmon and steelhead.
Investigating options for reconfiguration of the Cross Canal to reduce flood risk, and improve habitat for juvenile salmon and other wildlife.

Projects that we hope to start soon:

Surveying the extent of salmon and steelhead migration so habitat improvement resources can be
focused on cost-effective projects.
Planning a PIT tag study of trout and steelhead to understand their local distribution and lifecycle.
Investigating options for late-winter rearing of salmon and steelhead in seasonally-fallowed fields in the lower reaches of Auburn Ravine and Raccoon Creek.
