After several years of coordination with Sonoma County agencies and businesses, the first Annual Wild Steelhead Festival is being conducted February 8–10, 2008 to bring public awareness to this threatened species. Help support our sister chapter by attending, and learn of the efforts being made to enhance their natural habitat through many fun and educational events during the three days.

Thank you to the TU members who responded to the call for help to rescue fish from the poorly planned drainage of Prospect Island. The massive fish kill was very unfortunate and unnecessary but, as sometimes happens in various aspects of our lives, we learn from our mistakes. The agencies involved will undoubtedly be more careful in the future, and hopefully will not delay in accepting volunteer assistance as soon as it is offered and needed.
The 11th Annual Salmon Festival at the Nimbus Fish Hatchery concluded this afternoon, and it appears to have been another great success!
Even though the Chapter has been active only 13 months, this is our second consecutive year of participation. Quite a few of our Chapter members contributed ideas and materials during the planning stages for our booth, and enough members volunteered to have at least two people staffing the booth for each of the six 2-hour shifts. Mother Nature contributed by providing sunny skies after Friday's rain but, unfortunately, the salmon were not particularly cooperative. It seems they are a bit late arriving this year!
