WEDNESDAY, 5/3 @ 6:30PM Registration: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pacific-salmon-101-tickets-541508074227 Topic: Pacific Salmon 101 Location: Hospital @ Fort Flagler State Park Description: Why salmon are important to our ecologically? How do salmon affect our culture? What is the effect on our economy? Join us to learn about the 5 species of Pacific salmon and the differences between them, life cycle, habitat requirements, and finally, major threats that are hindering their recovery. Presenter: Nate Roberts is a Stewardship Coordinator with The North Olympic Salmon Coalition. Growing up in Gig Harbor, Nate could often be found fishing one of several small inlets, bays, or estuaries in search of salmon and trout. Shortly after receiving a B.A. in Elementary Education, he realized that while he loved working with kids, his desire to work in a career recovering salmon in his home state was even greater. Accordingly, he returned to school and recently received a B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences, specializing in riparian ecology and restoration. After interning with NOSC in spring 2019, he is eager to rejoin the team as a full-time employee working to improve salmon habitat.
