truly excited about this new collaborative effort. The theme of the
conference is Fisheries Restoration and Science in a Changing Climate. The
first two days of the conference will be filled with symposia, full-day
workshops continuing education classes, and field tours. A half-day plenary
session will be followed by 1.5 days of technical, biological, and
policy-related concurrent sessions. This conference will focus on a broad
range of salmonid, fisheries, and watershed restoration topics of concern to
restoration practitioners, and the scientific fisheries community.

This year the conference will feature workshops on topics including Water
Quality and TMDLs, Floodplain Restoration, a Fisheries Engineering and
Stream Restoration Symposium, Stormwater Pollution Workshop, and continuing
education classes on presentation skills, acoustic tag training, and River 2
D technology. Concurrent sessions include: the State of California
Salmonids, Anadromous Salmonid Monitoring, Stream Channel Restoration,
Central Valley Salmonid Recovery Planning, Marine and Estuarine Fisheries
Research: Conservation and Management, Status, Ecology and Management of
Inland Fishes and Anadromous/Migratory Fishes, Water Diversions and Fish
Impediments, FERC Relicensing and Restoration Opportunities, Planning,
Documenting, and Evaluating Fish Restoration Activities, Instream Flow for
Salmonids, and a Contributed Papers session.


Field Tours will visit restoration projects in Clear Creek, Battle Creek,
the Upper Trinity River, the Shasta River, the Upper Sacramento River and
Redding urban streams. The Plenary session will feature David Montgomery
author of King of Fish: the Thousand Year Run of Salmon and Dirt: the
Erosion of Civilization, Larry Brown from the US Geological Survey who will
discuss climate change and native fishes in the San Francisco Estuary and
watershed, and Dan Bottom from the National Marine Fisheries Service will
discuss "Pacific Salmon at the Crossroads and how Resilient are Salmon
Ecosystems." Maria Rea from NOAA will discuss salmonid recovery planning
efforts for salmon in California.


SRF and AFS have created a dynamic conference agenda that addresses pressing
issues that affect salmonid recovery and fisheries throughout the Pacific
Northwest. We are also combining some of the unique features of each of our
conferences. AFS will host a social at Turtle Bay, a job fair as part of the
joint poster session, and a Saturday morning 5K Spawning Run. SRF will
feature our annual meeting, the film screening of River of Renewal, a poster
session and reception, banquet, awards ceremony, cabaret, and dance band
