October 18-20, 2016 N/A
October 18-20, 2016 • Oregon Convention Center – Portland, Oregon
The main conference portion of Future of Our Salmon Conference focuses on policy issues related to floodplain management. Will involve presentations and discussions from policy leaders on ways to move forward on the issue. Throughout the main conference, the findings and outcomes of the technical workshop from August will be incorporated to inform and enhance the policy ramifications and potentials that will be discussed.
The goal of the Future of Our Salmon conferences is to facilitate dialogue between co-managers of the resource and a broad range of other interested parties in an ongoing quest for a unified vision of fish restoration in the Columbia River Basin. Each conference approaches this goal with a different theme. The 2016 Future of Our Salmon conference theme is “Healthy Floodplains, Living Rivers.” It will focus on the vital role of floods and floodplains to healthy rivers and develop a unified strategy to address climate change impacts for the benefit of the region’s fish, wildlife, and communities.
