The Upper Columbia Salmon Recovery Board (UCSRB) is hosting the 3rd regional salmon recovery science conference on January 24 & 25, 2018 in Wenatchee, WA. The UCSRB would like to invite your organization to help sponsor the 2018 Upper Columbia Science Conference. Sponsors are a critical part of making this conference a success. This year’s conference is based on the theme of “The Science of Survival” to reflect our region’s continued focus on science that benefits listed species and supports recovery efforts.  Our fundraising goal is $35,000 and we are asking for donations of $500 or more from our partners to help meet that goal. Meeting this goal will allow us to continue to offer this high quality event at minimal cost to participants. Contributions of $2,500 or more will receive special recognition. All sponsors will be recognized in conference materials and throughout the event and will receive two free registrations. For a full list of sponsor benefits please see the table below. 

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 our 2016 Science Conference, and we expect even greater participation in the next one, providing a great opportunity to highlight your organization. If you are interested in sponsorship please contact Greer Maier, UCSRB Science Program Manager, at (509) 888-7219 or greer.maier@ucsrb.org. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
