RRNW is sponsoring a fall field trip to the Elwha River to observe the amazing transformation to the river, river delta and ecosystem following the 2012 removal of the Elwha Dam and the 2014 removal of the Glines Canyon dam. Join us for a 1-day tour with Jamie Mitchel of the Coastal Watershed Institute, Jennifer Bountry of the US Bureau of Reclamation, and George Pess of National Marine Fisheries Service!
We will work our way from the former Elwha Dam Overlook to the river delta, led by Elwha River restoration design and planning experts the entire way. There will be ample opportunities for social gathering and storytelling on both Friday and Saturday evenings in Port Angeles. Details to follow.
Saturday, 9/29/2018 – Elwha River Restoration Field Trip
Like the Seattle and Portland speaker series, this event is intended to provide a regional networking opportunity for the stream restoration community outside of the annual symposium, and the chance to hear from an expert on a restoration-related topic, in an informal setting, with beer. To keep costs down, attendees will be responsible for their own lodging, transportation, food and drinks. Rest assured that the storytelling and conversation will be excellent.
Please keep an eye on your email for upcoming members-only early August ticket pre-sales. Return to this page in Mid-August for general ticket sales. The event fee will be $75. In order to keep fees to a minimum, this fee does not include any food, transportation, or lodging.
If you are interested in sponsoring future Seattle RRNW speaker series events, please contact Judi Radloff at email@example.com
You do not need to be an RRNW member to attend; however, we encourage you to join RRNW to help support future events!
