Currently, there are educational health advisories in place and the Russian River is open to visitors. Should conditions change to support the growth of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), information will be posted on the County webpage along with recommended health precautions. Information will be updated as needed. Learn more here.
