Aquatic Species & Habitats of the Monument – Friday Night Talk

Learn about the fascinating world beneath the surface of the creeks and streams of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument! Chris Volpe, Medford District BLM fish biologist, will take us on a journey to understand the Monument’s watersheds, the different kinds of aquatic habitats found there, and the species that call those habitats home. We will also discuss the challenges the watersheds currently face and how we can improve their condition and resilience.

Chris Volpe is the Medford District and Ashland Field Office Fish Biologist. He has been with the BLM for 22 years and spent another four years in the Rogue Basin prior to that collecting fish and habitat data with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Chris has been involved with monitoring, research, and restoration of aquatic species and habitats in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument for most of his career.

The Friday Hike and Learn sessions will take place in the Ashland Food Co-op Community Classroom at 300 N. Pioneer in Ashland from 6:00 to 7:30pm. The classroom is one block toward downtown from the grocery store on North First Street.

Friends of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is a nonprofit organization, and our mission is to support the protection, restoration and conservation of the monument through service, advocacy and education. Our Hike and Learn programs are designed to introduce the public to different topics and locations within the Monument. Hike and Learns are co-created with local scientists, historians, artists, students, and more.
