Wenatchee River Institute Scientist Speaker Series, Water!
Tuesdays, February 12 through March 5, 6 pm – 8 pm at Milepost 111 Brewing Co. in Cashmere, WA
Water availability is critical to our survival and livelihoods, yet must also be equitably balanced with the needs for environmental health and sustainability. Because the Wenatchee Valley population is growing rapidly, additional demands are thrust upon both human and natural systems; the adequate and timely supply of water is critical to our collective future.
Tuesdays beginning February 12 through March 5, the Wenatchee River Institute’s four-part Scientist Speaker Series, Water! explores the multitude of complexities facing water managers and scientists, as well as people living in the Wenatchee Valley and the Columbia River watershed. Four speakers will dive deep into the beaver relocation project, efforts to improve instream flow, and the current trends of salmon and steelhead populations.
February 12th – Robert Parrish, US Fish and Wildlife, the Wenatchee Valley Beaver Project
February 19th – Jason Lundgren, Cascade Columbia Fisheries Enhancement Group , the history of salmon and their decline in the Columbia River
February 26th – Jeremy Cram, WA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, new and emerging fish population trends in the Wenatchee River
March 5th – Aaron Penvose, Trout Unlimited, water use in the Wenatchee Valley and TU’s regional efforts to improve instream flow
