February's progam will feature a presentation from Matt Baerwalde, NFA member, and Nick Chambers of Trout Unlimited (TU). They will speak about upcoming legislation that may influence the future of suction dredging in Washington State. They will explain the damage being done to our streams from suction dredging and how NFA members can contact our representatives to voice our support of legislation aimed at reducing the damage.
As Matt explains, "Through my job at the Snoqualmie Tribe, I've been working for quite a few years now with Trout Unlimited and others on reforming the lack of regulations on instream aquatic mining in Washington State. TU is working on developing grassroots advocacy for this fish habitat protection work. We appreciate the opportunity to tell NFA about why we are working on this effort and how club members can help".
