Skills covered include a powerpoint introduction on the behavior of subject animals, on-the-ground training, guided search for fresh sign, trailing tips, interpretive direction, and conservation data reporting.

Sierra Club members receive an additional $10 off the workshop tuition of $65 and advanced registration is required via the Wolf College.

Screening of "DamNation" in Port Townsend

Thursday, May 29th, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, May 29th 2014

DamNation is a new, powerful and award-winning film odyssey which explores the sea change in our national attitude about dams. Its majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams. The film highlights dam removal stories, including the Elwha and White Salmon Rivers in Washington, the Rogue River in Oregon, and the Penobscot River in Maine. And, what's ahead on the lower Snake River in Washington.

Diverse interests across the country are coming together to remove obsolete dams and find more cost-effective options to meet power, shipping, irrigation and other needs, while helping to restore rivers, preserve tribal customs, recover fish stocks, revitalize waterfronts, improve recreational opportunities and render watersheds more resilient to climate change. DamNation documents the undeniable momentum behind river restoration that has begun to take hold in our country.
