This 2-hour go-to-meeting will consist of 10 speed presentations providing information on existing assessment approaches that are being used in the Columbia River to inform habitat work to benefit fish. This meeting is being held in response to the October 19th workgroup meeting discussion suggesting that we organize a webinar to discuss existing habitat approaches used to identify priority ecological concerns/limiting factors and for informing habitat actions.

These speed presentations provide a quick overview of existing approaches. Given the limited time for presentations and questions,  we encourage participants interested in learning more to contract the presenters after the meeting.
