Comments and Discussion
with Matt Strickland, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
Since we are not yet able to hold our in-person meetings, please join Matt and the Oregon Ocean Paddling Society for this first virtual meeting. Bring your own beer and pizza or refreshment of your choice. This is our first venture with an online meeting so it should be an interesting experience. Here is the link to log onto the Zoom teleconference meeting:
There will be a Q&A opportunity as well. If you have not used Zoom before, here is link with some FAQ's that should be helpful. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206175806. There is no charge to participate in this Zoom meeting.
Much of the research on salmon and steelhead habitat is done in streams you can hike into. In contrast, large river habitats are distant and difficult to reach which results in a lack of data. However, large rivers in Oregon potentially offer the highest diversity and opportunity for salmon research. Matt will discuss the challenges of large river habitat research, the Oregon plan for Salmon and Watersheds and new research technology.
Matt Strickland is a lifelong Oregonian with a passion for the outdoors. He went to Oregon State University where his focus was on fisheries. For the past 13 years Matt has surveyed creeks and rivers throughout Oregon for ODFW’s Aquatic Inventories Project.
We hope to resume our in person meetings as soon as safety permits.
