A City of Portland Rivers office free brownbag presentation by:

Dr. Carl Schreck, Oregon Coop. Fish & Wildlife Research Unit, U.S.G.S., Oregon State University
Dr.’s Yeakley and Schreck are members of Oregon’s IMST, a scientific review panel charged with advising the State on matters of science related to the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds, including fish recovery, water quality improvements, and enhancing watershed health. The team recently completed its long-awaited “urban report”, a comprehensive review of how human activities in urban and rural-residential areas can alter aquatic ecosystems—and resulting implications for salmonid recovery. Don’t miss this chance to get a guided tour of one of the most thorough assessments of the challenges facing urban watersheds yet produced!
