Salmonid Restoration Federation Conference- Redding March 10-13

This year, the Salmonid Restoration Federation has joined with the California-Nevada American Fisheries Society to hold its annual conference in Redding. The theme of this year’s conference is Fisheries Restoration
and Climate Change.

The first two days of the conference will feature full-day workshops, continuing education classes, and field tours. Following that will be a half-day plenary session and one and a half days of technical, biological and policy-related sessions. There are several events scheduled including a banquet, awards ceremony and dance.

GWWF Conservation Chair Cindy Charles will be presenting a talk along with Chris Shutes, FERC Projects Director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance. The session is entitled Restoring Central Valley Salmon and Steelhead through FERC Relicensing and will draw on our recent work on the lower Tuolumne, lower Merced and Butte Creek projects.
