We have, unfortunately, had another early start to the Chinook spawning survey effort this year. The hot weather and low stream flows proved too much for some of the Chinook holding in the Middle Fork John Day and we recovered 74 pre-spawn mortalities this month. So, fingers and fins crossed that the hottest days have passed and we find plenty of spawning fish in September.

Below are announcements for a couple fairly local BioBlitzes – Bainbridge on May 30 and Vashon/Maury on June 5&6. If you can identify organisms (anything living, from microbes to megamammals) these events can be really fun and an interesting way to take a close look at a particular locality over a short period of time and to share your expertise with organizations and communities interested in learning more about the resources for outreach and for management.
