“Salmon, Science & Suds" is a series of informal talks welcoming the community to better understand habitat restoration and rehabilitation efforts underway in the Sammamish watershed.
The second talk will be held at the Rogue Ales Issaquah Brewhouse on Wednesday, March 20 at 6:30pm and will feature King County Biologist Jim Bowers. Bowers will speak on the current state of Lake Sammamish Kokanee, ongoing preservation projects and programs and volunteer opportunities. The event starts at 6:30pm with 30 minutes for networking; Jim Bowers will speak at 7pm.
Salmon, Science & Suds is held quarterly. Speakers address water quality, healthy fish populations, and habitat restoration. The series is offered to share interesting research and initiatives currently improving the health of the Sammamish watershed.
“There is so much effort to restore habitat and fish populations in the watershed,” said Jennifer Adut, Executive Director of FLSSP. "We want to ensure that the public has access to learn about these important developments."
Mark Taylor, president of Trout Unlimited, agrees.
"It's all about the health of our Sammamish watershed and what each one of us can do to improve our local environment," said Taylor.
The evening will also include a raffle, great beer and good company.
