Alex Conley: Bringing Back Salmon and Steelhead in Cowiche Creek

Location: Yakima

West Nob Hill Blvd & South 16th Avenue, Yakima, WA 98902

7 - 8:30 pm  In Glenn Anthon Hall, Building 4, Room 215 - Like in many streams in the Yakima Basin, salmon and steelhead runs in Cowiche Creek disappeared when development blocked fish passage and diverted stream flows. In this talk, Alex Conley, Executive Director of the Yakima Basin Fish and Wildlife Recovery Board, will describe the partnerships that were built and the projects that have been completed to return salmon and steelhead to Cowiche Creek. Itís a great success story about restoring a creek and continuing to sustain the farms it runs through. Heíll also touch on the restoration work now happening in the watershed, and how climate change may affect streams like Cowiche Creek. This event is FREE to the public. For more information please call 509.248.5065.
