Emily is an active Board Member for the Native Fish Coalition and will be presenting on the many threats facing our native fish including salmonids and the most effective ways to combat those threats. The Native Fish Coalition’s intent is to find common ground wherever possible and work with as many organizations, government agencies, businesses and clubs. Their approach is data-driven, and they use information and education, research, habitat restoration and enhancement, reclamation and regulations to promote complete and long-term solutions.
