Community members are invited to a Nov. 15 public meeting to discuss a draft vision, goals and ideas for fish habitat conservation on the lands of the lower White Salmon River formerly affected by Condit Dam. Results from earlier public meetings and online survey will be shared to inform additional interactive discussions on the highest priority areas and future actions.
Mid-Columbia Fisheries Enhancement Group is developing a Fish Habitat Conservation Approach focused on the long-term health of salmon and steelhead habitat along the lower six miles of the White Salmon River. Feedback from landowners, residents, recreationalists, businesses, land managers and other stakeholders is sought to bring diverse perspectives to the approach.
Results of the public process will be documented in a report which Mid-Columbia Fisheries and other groups may use when planning and implementing conservation and restoration actions in the watershed.
The meeting is planned for 9 – 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Husum Fire Hall, 110 Main St., Husum.
