The Oregon Forest Resources Institute has organized the free one-day workshop, scheduled for Oct. 29, in collaboration with various public and private partners. These include the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, the Oregon Department of Forestry, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Associated Oregon Loggers, the Oregon Small Woodland Association, Hancock Forest Management, the Oregon Forest Industries Council, Oregon State University and Greenwood Resources.
The workshop will provide technical assistance, tools and resources to guide landowners with fish habitat and passage projects. Half the day will be spent in the classroom, and the remainder in the field visiting recent fish passage and habitat projects.
The aim is to encourage more forest landowners to take on fish habitat restoration or passage. The workshop will help landowners get the information they need to start planning successful projects.
The Willamette Valley Fish Passage and Habitat Workshop will take place on Oct. 29 in Salem at the Chemeketa-Eola Viticulture Center, 215 Doaks Ferry Road NW. Registration is available here.
The workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The deadline to register is Oct. 18.
