2014 Life History Workshop


April 16, 2014 | Wenatchee, WA


The intent of the Upper Columbia Life History Workshop was to provide participants with current information about general life history patterns that have been observed across the region as well as specific information on habitat use in each of the four subbasins (Wenatchee, Entiat, Methow, and Okanogan). Participants shared information through informal panels, presentation, and discussion. The following key questions were addressed in the workshop:

1)     What do we know and what do we not know about the freshwater life history and habitat use of spring Chinook and steelhead in the Upper Columbia?

2)     What are the applications and implications of life history patterns and habitat use to habitat projects and recovery plan implementation?
