May 18, 2013
In April we became the proud guardians of 250 winter steelhead eggs from a brood of native Wilson River steelhead trout! These fish depend on the cool, clear rivers that run through the forest. Join us to explore their incredible life cycles, what they need to survive, and how the Oregon Department of Forestry is making leaps for fish. After a short presentation, we will release the tiny fry in the Wilson River.
