*Wednesday, May 18th, 10:30-11:30am (Pacific)*

Viable, self-sustaining salmon populations depend upon unobstructed
passage to and from spawning and rearing habitats. When culvert size
relative to stream size is too small, the result is often a barrier to fish
movement. Climate change models project significant increases in stream
flows in much of Washington but climate change information is rarely
incorporated into culvert design. The Washington Department of Fish &
Wildlife (WDFW) has regulatory authority over most culvert and bridge
projects in Washington State. Currently, WDFW’s design guidelines do not
incorporate future climate-related changes and impacts.

This project translates projected future changes in regional climate
to stream width, a key parameter for fish passage culvert design and
sizing. Join presenters from WDFW as they discuss their modelling results
and ideas for how to apply them to site-scale decisions.

*About the Presenters:*
*Timothy Quinn*
Timothy Quinn is Chief Scientist of the Habitat Program at WDFW, adjunct
faculty at The Evergreen State College (TESC), and a member of the Science
Panel for the Puget Sound Partnership. Tim received his master degree in
physiological ecology in 1988 and doctorate in wildlife ecology from the
University of Washington in 1992. Tim manages the Science Division for the
Habitat Program who is responsible for providing technical expertise and
scientific study support for all Habitat Program needs. Tim has also taught
Conservation Biology in the Masters of Environmental Studies program at
TESC since 2005.

*George Wilhere*
George is a Senior Research Scientist at WDFW where he does various types
of quantitative analysis and modeling. He’s applied his modelling expertise
to spotted owl populations, snag dynamics, forest growth, habitat quality
of various wildlife species including salmon, ecoregional assessments,
conservation planning, and culvert design. He earned his master’s degree in
conservation biology from Duke University where he developed population
models for red-cockaded woodpeckers. In the distant past, he was a
biomedical engineer, high school biology teacher, and Outward Bound

*Jane Atha*
Jane is a geomorphologist in WDFW’s Habitat Science Division. She received
her BA in Geography from the University of Texas at Austin, her MS in
Geography from Texas State University – San Marcos, and her PhD from the
University of Oregon at Eugene. She is currently focused on hydraulic
structures and river restoration research in Washington State.
