Seventh Generation Supper

Join Transition Fidalgo & Friends for a community supper on Tuesday, November 29, at 5:45 pm at the Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.

Our presentation this evening is part of our Times of Change series, and is co-sponsored by the Skagit Climate Science Consortium.

“The Changing Food Web of Puget Sound and What it Means for Salmon” will be presented by Correigh Greene, Ph.D. Dr. Greene is a fish population ecologist with NOAA, and currently works at the National Marine Fisheries Service’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. He has studied the Skagit River salmon extensively and is a founding member of the Skagit Climate Science Consortium.

Puget Sound supports one of the most productive and diverse food webs of all the large estuaries in North America, symbolized by iconic species like salmon and the orcas who eat them. Those icons are fed by an abundance of small forage fish, who are in turn fueled by a rich community of tiny plankton. But that food web is changing as key forage fish are declining and jellyfish are booming. Why is this happening, what does it mean for the species we value the most, and what can we do about it? 

 

Open to all and welcome; no reservations necessary. Suggested supper donation $5/adult; $3/10 and under.  Please bring your own place settings, or simply join us for the presentation at 7:00. Seventh Generation Suppers include a sharing time and programs to help build local resilience and reduce carbon dependency. For more information, visit transitionfidalgo.org.
