Marylhurst science professor Kyle Dittmer will present a practical real-world view on three environmental crises that seem to be happening at once — and steps you can take to make a better world.

  • Immerse yourself in a thought-provoking and factual view on past and future climate change and its impact on the Pacific Northwest.
  • Discuss Columbia River salmon, the complex causes of their decline and current status, and what can be done to save this icon of our region.
  • Examine the earthquake that struck Japan in 2011, lessons learned and implications for the Pacific Northwest.

Luncheon Speaker: Salmon and First Foods
Gerald Lewis, a member of the Yakama Nation and a member of the Fish & Wildlife Committee of the Yakama Tribal Council, will offer a tribal perspective.

Workshop Presenter: Kyle Dittmer
Dittmer is a USDA-certified meteorologist. He has worked for the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission for the last 14 years as a hydrologist-meterologist. He just published in Climatic Change, a major peer-reviewed scientific journal, on his long-term research and assessment of climate change regarding Columbia River salmon.
