    Event Description:

Doors will open at 6:30pm for community social and no-host refreshments, with the presentation beginning at 7pm. Human activities, including salmon canneries operating along the Columbia during the last half of the 1800’s and the construction of large dams during the 1900’s, as well as environmental factors such as climate change, have all contributed to the massive decline in salmon populations. Lundgren’s presentation will include a slideshow and offer ideas for how salmon in the Columbia River can be protected, how to mitigate the fish’s population loss and how healthy populations can be restored.
