2018 Upper Columbia Science Conference

January 24-25, 2018

Wenatchee, Washington

The Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board (UCSRB) is hosting our third regional salmon recovery science conference on January 24 & 25, 2018 in Wenatchee, WA. This year’s conference is based on the theme of “The Science of Survival” to reflect the region’s continued focus on science related to survival bottlenecks. Similar to our 2016 conference, the UCSRB hopes to bring in experts from across the Northwest to present the latest and most compelling science. The conference is intended for a variety of audiences including monitoring and research professionals, project sponsors, contractors, regional technical team members, elected officials, agency representatives, academics, and the public. The four objectives for the conference are to:

  1. Connect science with recovery efforts,
  2. Share and discuss information about listed species in the Upper Columbia and their habitat,
  3. Bring experts from outside the region to share ideas, and
  4. Network and interact with others working on salmon recovery throughout the region.

Over 350 people attended the 2016 Upper Columbia Science Conference, and the UCSRB expects a similar turnout in 2018.
