Elwha River: Panel will provide short takes on dam removal

February 16, 2014 

The Burke Museum will host Tuesday a panel of 10 experts who will discuss the removal of the two dams on the Elwha River.

During “Short Takes on Dam(n) Science,” each panelist will have 20 slides and less than 6 minutes to discuss what they are learning about the removal of the dams. They will cover topics such as life before the dams, the return of salmon to the upper river, restoration of near-shore areas and the evolution of the river.

Serving as special guest host will be Ranae Holland, a scientist featured on Animal Planet’s “Finding Bigfoot” and a fisheries biologist who has done research on the Elwha.

The event begins at 7 p.m. at The Neptune Theater, 1303 NE 45th St., Seattle.

The cost is $5 at the door or online at stgpresents.org.
