Sip ’n’ Science to focus on salmon

The Luckiamute Watershed Council will host Love your Watershed: Sip ’n’ Science from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 12 at Valkyrie Wine Tavern, 301 S. Main St., Independence.

The workshop will talk about protecting salmon strongholds around the Pacific Rim. Admission is free, but a suggested donation of $5 will help cover costs to bring this even to our community.

The event is a partnership with Willamette Habitat Restoration and the Wild Salmon Center.

Matthew Sloat, science director at Wild Salmon Center, draws on experiences in Kamchatka and the Russian Far East, as well as work in our home watersheds on the Oregon Coast to explore the ideals and realties of safeguarding a future for Pacific salmon.

Enjoy a tale of some of our watershed’s most iconic native fish while enjoying some of Valkyrie’s wines and special menu items.
