Fireside Environmental Speaker Series
The GGACC Conservation Committee is pleased to invite you to our virtual speaker event
California’s Hat Creek & Fall River
Native Fish Restoration
March 11th, 7PM
A presentation by Andrew Braugh and Carson A. Jeffres from CalTrout
The spring-fed streams of Northern CA support some of the finest trout fishing in the West. Massive volcanic aquifers below Mount Shasta and Mount Lassen capture and store snowmelt and surface runoff. These underground reservoirs deliver one of the most dependable and reliable sources of in-stream flow for wild and native fish. Join Regional Director Andrew Braugh to talk about CalTrout’s on-going efforts to restore the Fall River and Hat Creek and learn why these cold-water systems are critically important for protecting genetic diversity and building climate resilience.

About Andrew Baugh:
As the Shasta-Klamath Regional Director for California Trout, Andrew Braugh oversees a portfolio of conservation programs focused on recovering salmon and steelhead in the mid-Klamath Basin and improving water management practices on agricultural lands throughout Siskiyou County. Andrew holds an M.A. degree in International Management and Public Administration from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and a Master of Business Administration from Southern Oregon University.
About Carson A. Jeffres:
Dr. Jeffres’ research program is broadly focused on applied aquatic ecology and physical processes with an emphasis on anadromous fishes across freshwater and estuarine ecosystems. His research aims to fill critical data gaps needed by fisheries and water resource managers to implement effective restoration and conservation measures for both imperiled and other native species. In particular, his work has focused on restoration and novel management of floodplain habitats in order to better manage for a variety of native fish species. Over time, his research program has been able to develop new conceptual models and collaborate across disciplines as well as across a variety of partners from farmers and ranchers to agency personnel to generate novel solutions for difficult natural resource problems.
