Presentations & Events

I served as a member of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau from 2011-2016 where I spoke on the social and environmental aspects of dam removal, and the history of fish and fishing in the Columbia Basin, respectively. I also regularly present to public schools, civic and conservation groups, museums, and interested scientific organizations.

Planned presentations/events will be updated following release of my new book, “Chasing Ghost Trout.”

The following is a partial list of topics I have presented on over the past several years. Of particular interest to me are those about the natural history and ecology of Columbia River fishes and fishing Blue Mountain streams. Please contact me if your group is looking for an entertaining and informative speaker.
