Only one month since the new Biological Opinion for Daguerre and Englebright Dams was issued, the Salmonid Restoration Federation is having their 30th annual conference in Davis, April 4-7. A bright conversation piece among the hundreds of conservationists will be magnificent list of actions (see below) now required of the Army Corps of Engineers for the sake of Yuba River salmon and steelhead. SYRCL’s Science Director and Watershed Coordinator will be there to present a poster table, and participate in workshops on floodplain restoration, dam removal, and the genetic effects of hatchery strays on wild populations. The large community of salmon enthusiasts knows that SYRCL is responsible for the “win” on the Yuba, and the newly improved odds for recovering these fish from the threat of extinction. Come celebrate (and learn) with us! The poster session is Friday evening, and many great keynote speakers take the stage Friday. See a more detailed description of the conference, or the full schedule at www.calsalmon.org.
