Take Action - Your Voice Needed for Wild Steelhead!

There is a very important Washington State Senate Natural Resources & Parks Committee hearing tomorrow Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 10:00AM.

The purpose of the hearing is to discuss the recent Puget Sound steelhead hatchery litigation and settlement between the Wild Fish Conservancy and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The hearing called by committee chair, Senator Kirk Pearson (R - Monroe) will include presentations from WDFW, WFC, Puget Sound Tribes, NOAA Fisheries, recreational fishers, and fishing businesses. At this hearing there may be NO other invited speakers voicing support for wild steelhead.  

But there will  be time for public input - your chance to show state legislators your support for wild steelhead recovery, and so it is crucial that you show up, stand up, and speak up for rivers managed for wild steelhead.  

When: Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 10:00 am

Where: Senate Hearing Rm 1
