Get Involved in Eel River Dam Removal

"More recent research has shown that there were evolutionary events millions of years ago that caused this divergence. They were random events and they're not, as you might imagine, likely to happen again in any reasonable time scale. Once those fish are gone, their genotype is gone". Samatha Kannry talks about pre-mature migrating fish like spring chinook and summer steelhead, how their genetic variance evolved, and why they are more vulnerable to human induced changes to habitat than their later-run cousins.

Now is your chance to get involved in Eel River dam removal. Join host Alicia Hamann, Administrative Director for Friends of the Eel River and guests Scott Greacen, and Samatha Kannry, to learn about the Eel River dams' impact to native fish.

From NPR

Chester Bennington, one of the lead singers for the band Linkin Park and the former singer for Stone Temple Pilots, has died. His death was confirmed to NPR this afternoon by the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, which said that his body was discovered at a house within the 2800 block of Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles, and that investigators are currently on the scene. The death is "being looked at as a possible suicide at this time," according to Brian Elias of the L.A. County Coroner's office. Bennington was 41 years old.

Groups that represent industries from farming to fracking are supporting a legislative push to rewrite how government handles science when drawing up regulations.

And the whole effort has scientists worried.

With cheese in hand, he visited supermarkets, trying to persuade them to sell his product. Some didn't take him seriously. But Whole Foods did.

"From the very beginning, they wanted to taste it," Schott recalls. "And they wanted to know the story. They wanted to know where the cheese came from; who was making it; where it was made."
