ASRP Symposium Events

The ASRP Steering Committee hosts symposium events in the basin to share the scientific knowledge that has come from Chehalis Basin Strategy investment to better understand the basin ecosystems.

2020 Symposium

Date: January 7-8th, 2020
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm
Location: Centralia College; 600 Centralia College Blvd., Centralia WA 98531

Agenda Topics

Day 1 (1/7/20) of the ASRP Symposium is geared toward the restoration and conservation community, as well as those who are interested in the more technical and scientific aspects of the ASRP Phase 1 development. There will be several presentations which fall into four categories: monitoring, modeling, genetics, and habitat restoration data gaps. There will be time after each presentation for audience questions, so come prepared!

Day 2 (1/8/20) of the ASRP Symposium is designed to engage and inform a broader audience of the ASRP and how this program interacts with communities in the Chehalis Basin. There will be several interactive activities throughout the day including two panel discussions: the first will address restoring resilience into the Basin and how the ASRP actions will help accomplish this. The second panel discussion will introduce ASRP implementation strategies. Symposium participants will then engage in a multi-part discussion to help develop community-based solutions to implementation challenges.

A detailed agenda will be posted to this page in the coming weeks.

2018 Symposium

The Chehalis Basin ASRP Steering Committee hosted the Science Symposium September 19-20, 2018 in Chehalis. The two-day event was an opportunity to share findings from scientific research that informs the ASRP, as well as receive feedback on the Ecological Diversity Region Prioritization to inform Phase 1 ASRP development.

All scientific presentations and associated reports are posted for distribution.

Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife has been conducting research to inform the Chehalis Basin ASRP for several years. Below are the studies presented at the Science Symposium in fall 2018.
