Native kokanee salmon were once the most common salmon in Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. Today, native kokanee have been reduced to a small population in Lake Sammamish… or have they? This talk will explore the origins of salmon in the Lake Washington basin, prospects for restoration of native kokanee and the mystery of the “snerka.”

The University of Washington Bothell is partnering with McMenamins History Department to present Pub Night Talks — a monthly series of talks by experts from UW Bothell and around the local community.

These talks are held the last Tuesday evening of each month at McMenamins Anderson School in downtown Bothell. Doors open at 6 pm. Talks begin at 7 p.m. and are followed by Q&A.

All talks are free and open to the public. All ages welcome!

All seating is first come, first served.
