Topic:  “Update- Big Wood River Initiative”

Presenter : Keri York, Trout Unlimited, Big Wood River Project Manager

The Big Wood River is part of  the TU National Home Rivers Initiative.

The Big Wood Home Rivers Initiative seeks to take advantage of a supportive local angling community and our long history of restoration success to restore the full wild trout potential of the Big Wood.

In February, 2016, a Geomorphic assessment of the Big Wood River was completed and presented to the public.  This study is combined with other studies on fish populations and entomology of the Big Wood River.

Keri York , Big Wood River  Project Manager kyork@tu.org is the TU’s full time staff person working on the goals of the initiative and is working out of an office in Hailey.

Keri will present an update on current, planned and completed projects on the Big Wood River and surrounding waters. Also discussed will be challenges which face the Big Wood river function and ecosystem.

Come and join us for what is certain to be an entertaining and educational evening.

Admission is free, All are welcome
