Organizers said they are also hoping it will be possible for information to be presented about salmon returns in the Quesnel River, following efforts by local, provincial and federal agencies to assist their passage past the Big Bar slide in the Fraser River.

Talks will begin at 10 a.m. and will be followed by lunch. Location details are available at www.unbc.ca/qrrc.
