The third Salmon, Science & Suds will be held at the Rogue Ales Issaquah Brewhouse on Wednesday, April 17, and will feature Elyssa Kerr, program manager at Beavers Northwest. Kerr will discuss beaver ecology and the important benefits beavers bring to habitat creation and climate change mitigation.
Beavers Northwest is a nonprofit organization that advocates for the many benefits that beavers provide through research, outreach and landowner assistance. More information about out services can be found at http://www.beaversnw.org/. Kerr spearheads the outreach, education, and landowner assistance programs. She derives equal joy from sharing fun facts about beavers with folks of all ages and throwing on her chest waders to climb into beaver ponds.
Salmon, Science & Suds speakers address water quality, healthy fish and wildlife populations, and habitat restoration. The series is offered to share interesting research and initiatives currently improving the health of the watershed.
The evening will also include beer and food, and good company. The Issaquah Brewhouse is located at 35 W Sunset Way in Issaquah.
Salmon Science & Suds is presented by Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park, Trout Unlimited, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Mid Sound Fisheries, Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership, and Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery.
