Natural History Museum in Rocklin offers presentation
Rocklin--The Sierra College Natural History Museum will present an illustrated lecture entitled "Perspectives on Managing and Conserving California's Native Trout Species" by Jeff Weaver on Friday, November 30, at 7:30 PM in Sewell Hall (room 111) on the Sierra College-Rocklin Campus.
Join us for an overview of DFG's Heritage and Wild Trout Program from Jeff Weaver, a scientist with the Department of Fish & Game, as he discusses current management and conservation actions being taken for native trout species. Jeff will describe lessons learned from the meeting room and the field, his experiences with native trout and their habitats, the efforts we are putting forth to conserve trout both for their ecological values and for the enjoyment and appreciation of future generations, as well as the challenges we face to accomplish these ends.
Jeff Weaver has been engaged in the field of biological conservation and natural resource protection and management for the past 20 years. His career began as an undergraduate performing seasonal fisheries field work with the California Department of Fish and Game. After graduating from CSU Sacramento, he worked for the US Forest Service as a Wilderness Ranger and Wilderness Program Manager in Desolation Wilderness, and spent winter months teaching sixth grade outdoor education at the Sly Park Environmental Education Center. While in graduate school, he spent summers performing remote, backpack based, biological field surveys across the Sierra Nevada Mountains to document the presence (or absence) and abundance of native amphibians (mountain yellow-legged frogs, Yosemite toads and other taxa) and then took a permanent position with CDFG as a CalFED Ecosystem Restoration Program grant manager in the northern Sacramento Valley area. In 2006, he transferred to the CDFG Heritage and Wild Trout Program, where he is currently a Staff Environmental Scientist, focusing on statewide native trout conservation and management. He also teaches occasional Natural History Field Studies courses through Folsom Lake College, with a focus on Sierra Nevada ecosystems and biotic communities.
This presentation is part of the Sierra College Natural History Museum's 2012-2013 lecture series, and will be held on Friday, November 30 at 7:30 pm in Sewell Hall, room 111.
