This email is a follow-up to the email sent out on June 24th, 2009,
notifying interested parties about the dates and locations of the two
regional meeting that will be held in California for the Pacific lamprey
Conservation Initiative.

The Pacific Lamprey Conservation Initiative is an effort coordinated by the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) to facilitate communication and
coordination relative to the conservation of Pacific lamprey throughout
their range. The goal of the initiative is to develop a Pacific Lamprey
Conservation Plan (Plan) that will lead to restored Pacific lamprey
populations and improvement of their habitat.

In 2009, the Conservation Initiative Team will be hosting a set of regional
work sessions to develop regional components of the Plan. The Service will
be hosting regional meetings to cover California, Idaho, Oregon,
Washington, and Alaska. The purpose of these meetings is to gather
information on distribution, abundance, ongoing research, and threats
specific to these regions.

We are planning to hold two regional meetings for California, including the
Oregon component of the Klamath Basin. One meeting will be held in Arcata,
CA, and will cover the coastal drainages from Cape Mendocino to the Oregon
Border and the entire Klamath Basin. The second meeting will be held in
Sacramento, CA and will cover from Cape Mendocino south including the
Sacramento and San Joaquin river basins.

The Pacific Lamprey Conservation Initiative Team is encouraged by the level
of interest indicated by the previous doodle survey.  The California
regional meetings are as follows:

Arcata, CA

      Location:   Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center, Room 211 & 212

                  921 Waterfront Drive, Eureka, CA
