  This Evening Talk is a continuation of the 2019 Wild Steelhead Review Series on the Olympic Peninsula and will be a combined presentation with Bill McMillan and his son John. Bill brings an extensive historical steelhead accounts in Washington State since the 1950’s forward.  His short talk will lead into John’s work in the Northwest and the Olympic Peninsula.

For a quick view of our coastal salmonid needs take a look at https://vimeo.com/326387618 for a short video developed by Wild Salmon Center:  Coldwater Connections to the Olympic Peninsula. You may see a familiar face or two on this short video on the coastal salmonid strongholds on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula with a quick view at the Hoh, Queets, and Quillayute Rivers with concerns on the coast’s fish barriers we are all challenged with as well as a glimpse of the great work being done on the Olympic Peninsula for salmonid restoration by many partners working together for good habitat restoration.

Please join us! Evening Talks at ONRC is funded through the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry, natural resources; and the Forks community. Refreshments will be served and a potluck of your favorite dessert is encouraged. For more information contact:  Frank Hanson at 374-4556 or fsh2@uw.edu.

By sharing her love of poetry, Adams encourages audiences to share poems that have deeply touched their lives and discusses how writing poetry can be a potent medicine for us all.
