The 8th Spring-run Chinook Symposium will take place July 26 - 28, 2016. The first day will be a full-day symposium at the Masonic Family Center in Chico, CA followed by two days of field tours.
The year's Symposium will highlight regional status reports on Spring-Run Chinook populations, instream flow studies and fish passage assessments, water conservation and transactions, and how to translate research and genetics into implementation and recovery actions.
Field tours will include visits to the legendary spawning grounds in Upper Butte Creek and PG&E’s hydroelectric retrofit projects; salmon and steelhead fish passage in Lower, Deer, Mill and Antelope Creek that have been prioritized for instream flow enhancement and fish passage projects; a Clear Creek Spring Chinook Restoration tour; and a tour of Lower Butte Creek Water Diversions.
Registration is $200 until June 25th. Late registration is $225. Your registration fees will cover field tours, symposium, and lunches.
