Biennial Meeting

AFS Cal-Neva Chapter Meeting

58th Cal-Neva Meeting

April 9-12th, 2024 in Redding, California
*Continuing education April 9

Join us at the Red Lion Hotel and Turtle Bay for the last meeting until 2026. The theme for the 2024 conference is “Breaching the Dam: Building Partnerships.” We will bring together people of diverse backgrounds and expertise to tell the stories about the resilience of Native American tribes, competing interests in a water-limited environment, and of native ecosystems and fishes in the face of significant hydrologic perturbations and uncertainty.  In doing so, we hope to achieve and learn from others who have experienced conservation successes and find applicable ways for people and the natural world to flourish together.

Continuing Education courses will be held on April 9th.

Abstracts submissions are closed, please direct any abstract related questions to [email protected]
