Over the past year, the team at Native Fish Society (NFS) has been brainstorming ways in which we could build the groundswell of public support for wild fish throughout the Pacific Northwest. Out of this brainstorm, our team is very excited to announce we are launching a River Steward Chapter model!
We are piloting this River Steward Chapter model for all passionate river and fish advocates in the Eugene area based on the growing interest in building a community around wild native fish!
On Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at 5:30 pm, we will be hosting our first-ever chapter get-together at Hendricks Park at the FM Wilkins Shelter. Native Fish Society will bring food (pizza) but please bring a beverage of your choice!
No need to prepare or plan ahead, this meeting will be all about getting together, building community, and having fun. In the future, our goal is to put our heads together about some key conservation efforts we can tackle to help restore abundant wild fish to the McKenzie and upper Willamette Rivers.
So please hold your calendar for Tuesday, March 29! Bring a friend or two, and let’s have a great time! We are excited to meet everyone in person and continue to build a groundswell of public support to restore abundant wild fish, free-flowing rivers, and thriving local communities.
