September 28th General Meeting

Our next General Meeting will be at 7:00 PM on Wednesday September 28th at the Edmonds Senior Center, 220 Railroad Ave, Edmonds, WA 98020. The meeting will include a special presentation on the Kokanee restoration project in the Lake Sammamish watershed and updates on what's happening in the chapter.

Jim Bower of King County and David Kyle of Trout Unlimited will be discussing native kokanee in the Lake Washington Basin, especially the Lake Sammamish watershed. Topics will include current population trends, ongoing restoration efforts, what we understand from historic accounts including pre- and post- construction of the ship canal, and what has led to the decline in this population between the 1920s and early 2000s. 

Jim Bower is a fish ecologist with King County and David Kyle is Trout Unlimited’s Lake Sammamish Kokanee Restoration Project Manager.
