Lecture: Are Salmon Doomed? Hatching a Plan to Save a Northwest Icon

Monday, May 27, 2019

Nick Bond
Climatologist
Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 7-8pm at the Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th, Shoreline 98155.

An environmental necessity, a vital economic resource, and a cultural symbol, salmon play a fundamental role in the Pacific Northwest—but they are in trouble.

With warming oceans, environmental degradation, and lowering genetic variability, wild salmon populations are dwindling.

Climatologist Nick Bond explores the past, present, and possible future conditions for salmon in our state, and sees room for optimism. 

He shares lessons on how local communities have accomplished important work to support salmon runs, but also takes a hard look at the realities climate change poses for this regional treasure.

Explore the history, science, and story of this cherished Northwest icon.
