This will be an open and interactive discussion with audience members, we look forward to your questions.

Randy Reeve has had a career of firsts:

  • He was the first ODFW  BPA funded habitat technician in Enterprise where helped develop and direct habitat restoration projects and helped get several miles of streams fenced off from cattle and those streams now have over 60% shade.
  • He was the first ODFW BPA funded supervising habitat bio 2 in the Pendleton area and was the lead writer for the Umatilla habitat restoration project and signed more landowners up to the program then Enterprise, LaGrande and John Day projects combined.
  • He developed and ran the first radio tagging project on steelhead in the Siletz River and was able to close the upper Siletz basin above the falls to Coho,  fall chinook and winter steelhead so the highly endangered summer steelhead could make a come back and they have.  It is the only native population of summer steelhead on the Oregon Coast.
  • He designed and constructed the first acclimation pond  in the Siletz Basin and new Siletz winter steelhead broodstock program
  • He was the first person ever to radio tag steelhead in Russia.
  • He was the first ODFW / ODOT statewide coordinator and FHWA has flown him nationwide teaching construction avoidance measures and BMP’s

He is now semi-retired and has his own consulting business (Reeve Sherwood Consulting,LLC) where he designs fish and wildlife passage projects and helps design and construction companies obtain permits and does the fish salvage work associated with those projects.
