As part of the new Sierra Science Speaker Series, the Nevada County Campus welcomes Steve Rothert in a discussion titled "Restoring Salmon to the Upper Yuba."  This presentation and discussion will be held on Tuesday evening, April 8, from 6:30–7:30 pm, in the Multipurpose Center, building, N-12. Come early and enjoy a meet-and-greet and refreshments at 6:00 pm.

Summary of presentation: Since before 2000, river advocates, scientists and dam owners have been studying and litigating whether and how to restore salmon and steelhead trout runs to the Yuba River above Englebright Dam, which has blocked fish from reaching the upper Yuba since 1940. River advocates have been inspired by the vision of restoring salmon to their home waters in the Sierra Nevada to spawn for the first time in nearly a century, while dam owners objected for fear of the costs they would incur in such folly, and scientists wondered if it could even be done.  After numerous studies over 15 years and costing more than $10 million, we believe the data say “Yes we can”.  This presentation will tell the story of what salmon seek in spawning habitat, what the North, Middle and South Yubas offer them, and how we might get salmon returning from the ocean up there to spawn and their offspring back out to the Pacific. 

About the speaker: Steve Rothert earned his B.S. in ecology from UCLA and his M.S. in river sciences from UC Berkeley. He was the director for the Southern Africa Program for International Rivers Network based in Botswana, was Director of the national Hydropower Reform Coalition, and served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the fisheries program in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Steve joined American Rivers in 2001 and in 2002 began serving as Director of American Rivers' California Regional Office. In addition to overseeing office operations, he manages American Rivers' programs in California related to hydropower reform, anadromous fish restoration, dam removal, climate change and water supply.

This presentation is free, and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. The Nevada County Campus is located at 250 Sierra College Drive, Grass Valley, CA 95945. Parking is $3 on campus and can be purchased at the kiosk machine at the main entrance to the campus.
