Life in the River: Salmon, Steelhead and Trout in Tillamook County

Join us May 30th at the Tillamook County Library, 6:30PM, for an in-depth update on salmon, steelhead and trout populations in Tillamook County from ODFW research biologist Derek Wiley. Wiley will share data collected by his Life Cycle Monitoring crew, as well as a compilation of amazing videos capturing underwater behavior of juvenile and adult chum salmon, Chinook salmon, coho salmon, and Pacific lamprey in several rivers and creeks on the northern Oregon Coast. The Council’s regular monthly meeting will follow the presentation, including updates on habitat restoration efforts in the Tillamook Bay Watershed. These monthly events are FREE and open to the public.
