Fish and forests command significant attention in Oregon's vibrant dialogue. Both resources have a deep history of contributing to our culture, economy, and ecology. This talk is aimed at illuminating how fish- especially salmon and steelhead - and forests interact. How do our coastal forested watersheds impact salmonid health? What role do play in forest ecosystems? And, what are the implications of the way we manage these resources?

Bob Rees is the Executive Director of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders and a professional fishing guide with over 20 years experience on Oregon's waterways.

Ian Fergusson is a river steward and For nearly two decades, he has examined wild steelhead populations in the Salmonberry River.
