The Big River Program of the Mendocino Land Trust is pleased to announce the seventh Big River Lecture, with guest speaker Rob Dickerson of Trout Unlimited. Rob’s presentation is entitled, “Trout Unlimited’s North Coast Coho Project: Ongoing Projects and Implications for the Big River Watershed.” The lecture is scheduled for Thursday, November 8, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Hall, located at 10700 Lansing St. in Mendocino.
The goals of the North Coast Coho Project are to assess watershed conditions, to develop and implement projects to restore degraded habitats, to change land management regimes to protect restored habitats, and, where necessary, to reintroduce coho salmon into restored watersheds using the latest principles of conservation biology. As Project Manager, Dickerson is responsible for planning, assessment, stream restoration and fish population monitoring with dozens of private and public partners for the benefit of Coho, Chinook and steelhead.
