Want to learn more about what the future could hold for Alaska’s wild salmon runs? Join us at Juneau’s Centennial Hall on Friday, November 9, at 4:30 to hear a lively and thought-provoking presentation by Dr. Robert Lackey, a professor of fisheries science and adjunct professor of political science at Oregon State University.Dr. Lackey co-edited the anthology Salmon 2100 in which diverse authors tackle the question — “What is it really going to take to have wild salmon populations in 2100?” He will share a retrospective look at the Salmon 2100 project and offer his vision on policy, social changes and restoration practices that provide insight into wild salmon conservation. Dr. Lackey will close with a discussion of how all this applies to wild salmon populations in Alaska, specifically the Southeast Panhandle.
The talk is sponsored by the Southeast Alaska Fish Habitat Partnership whose current members include Trout Unlimited, Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition, The Nature Conservancy, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.
The event kicks off with a social gathering at 4:30 p.m. followed by the talk at 5:30 p.m. Questions? Contact Deborah Hart, Coordinator, Southeast Alaska Fish Habitat Partnership, at 907-723-0258.
