Seymour Center members, join us for a special Salmon Week adventure!
Scott Creek and Hatchery Tour:
Member-only Field Trip
Members are invited to join Eric Palkovacs, director of the Fisheries Collaborative Program, on a tour of the Scott Creek watershed, home to threatened steelhead trout and endangered coho salmon. Learn about ongoing efforts to restore the southernmost coho salmon population in California. Visit the life cycle monitoring station, see the effects of the CZU wildfire, and take a tour of the conservation hatchery. The field trip concludes with a screening of Southern Range, a documentary film about ongoing efforts to save our iconic salmon.
Space is limited to 20 participants. Advance reservations are required.
