Most Recent Trip: Two Day OHRC Fisheries Workshop – May 6 & 7th
The Fisheries and Wildlife Club provided a hands on, skills-oriented workshop at the Oregon Hatchery Research Center near Alsea, OR. This would not have been possible without the generous time and resources provided by Joseph O’Neil (OHRC Facility Manager) and Karen Hans (ODFW STEP Biologist). This was an excellent opportunity for students to visit one of ODFW’s state-of-the-art research facilities in a beautiful location and get valuable experience to prepare for summer internships!
Skills offered during trip:
- Electroshock Fishing
- Knot Tying
- Tig Welding
