WHEN: Wednesday, May 13, 2015
WHERE: Lucky Lab Public House [Multnomah]
WHAT TIME: 6:30 p.m. Socializing; meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
WHAT to EXPECT: Melissa Brown - "Urban Fish: Making a Living in the City"
The Portland metro area is home to dozens of resident and migratory fish species. For these fish, it’s survival of the fittest, as their habitat exists as a shell of its former self due to cumulative impacts of population growth, habitat loss,  pollution, passage barriers, fishing pressure, invasive predation, and competition with hatchery fish. Yet, we see populations persist!
Melissa will take you to some of the pockets of salvation where we still find remnants of what once was, and discuss what the City is doing to keep salmonids around for the long run.
WHAT to BRING: an appetite and a friend! Food and beverages are available for purchase - second floor banquet room.
