CHARLESTON — Shoreline Education for Awareness will host a free seminar on the Coos River Basin wild and hatchery fall Chinook on Saturday, Feb. 17. The program will be presented by Chris Clare, habitat protection biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Clare will trace the Coos River Basin wild and hatchery fall Chinook population trends from the late 1800s to today. Salmon continue to play an important cultural and economic role in the Northwest. Learning about their habitat in the Coos River Basin will give a greater insight into these remarkable fish.
