Let’s talk fish, dams, and options… LTWC is hosting a third public meeting on this project on Thursday, June 8 in Monroe. In November last year, the council began an outreach and engagement process to identify habitat enhancement opportunities for the Long Tom River downstream of Fern Ridge Reservoir. The council’s goals for this project are to find the best ideas to: 1) improve habitat, 2) address fish passage blockages, and 3) increase channel capacity via more natural processes and connections instead of only mechanical means. This June 8 meeting will feature award winning educator Stan Gregory focusing on the Long Tom River. Then Denise Hoffert will share specific examples of other fish passage projects on a river of our size, and we’ll have time for your questions and comments.

Speakers:

  • Stan Gregory, award-winning educator, distinguished fisheries scientist, professor emeritus at Oregon State University
  • Denise Hoffert, Outreach & Improvement Plan Consultant

Free and open to all!

Refreshments provided
There will be an informal meet and greet with new Executive Director, Clinton Begley, from 5:30 – 6:00 p.m.
