For those of you who would like to visit the Goldstream Hatchery, arrangements have now been made to get you into the facility this coming Saturday, 14 October. Peter McCulley, technical adviser for the Goldstream fish hatchery, has offered to meet with the class to show you their operation, discuss fishery management issues, impacts of climate change on anadromous species and any other salmon-related topic you wish to explore with him.
With respect to timing, those who choose to go will need to arrive at the GVWD security gate at 8:00-8:15 am; I would guess that 2+ hours will be enough - i.e. you should be back on campus well before noon.
We have to get back to Peter by Friday afternoon with a count of how many people and vehicles will be arriving on Saturday morning. Therefore, organize logistics and email Sharon.firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know by 3pm on Friday afternoon.
