Meet and greet starts at 6 p.m. with the meeting running 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The program is our annual "conservation science" program. This year, the chapter will drill dopwn on how our fisheries in this area are likely to change because of projected climate change.
The impacts are expected to be substantial, with threats to our fisheries coming from warming water temperatures, stream drying due to drought, changes in the timing and nature of spring and summer flow levels and impacts of increased wildfire among others.
The chapter hopes to better understand the impact in order to focus in-stream and near-stream work efforts with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, The San Juan National Forest and landowners.
Clay Kampf, a fish biologist with the San Juan National Forest and a trout fisherman, will lead the discussion.
Matt Clark will give a brief update on the mitigation work being done at the Argentine St. Louis ponds site just above Rico.
