Jim Lichatowich speaking in Eugene tonight

Salmon biologist, conservationist and author Jim Lichatowich will be speaking in Eugene tonight, reading from his new book Salmon, People and Place.

OSU Press book on salmon

Here is a great quote from Lichatowich in a recent interview:

By relying more and more on hatcheries we’re creating a charade of sorts where the river that can’t support a salmon becomes a stage prop where fishermen and fish play out their respective roles, reenacting something, an important part of our past, that now is sort of a hollow empty memory of it.

The event tonight is hosted by the Western Environmental Law Center at Cozmic Pizza in Eugene, 6pm. You can find more event details on Facebook.
