“Salmon, Science & Suds” is a series of informal talks at the Rogue Ales Issaquah Brewhouse, welcoming the community to better understand habitat restoration and rehabilitation underway in the Sammamish watershed.
The first talk will be held at 7 p.m., on Jan. 16 and will feature Ken King from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He will speak on the mortality rate of coho due to stormwater runoff.
Salmon, Science & Suds will be held quarterly and will discuss water quality, healthy fish populations, and habitat restoration.
The series is offered to share research and initiatives currently improving the health of the Sammamish watershed with Trout Unlimited, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park (FLSSP), Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership and Mid Sound Fisheries as coordinating partners.
“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 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,” Taylor said.
The evening also will include a raffle.
