Name: Olympic National Park Perspectives: Winter Speaker Series: Lake Ozette: An Ecological Update
Date: January 17, 2023
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM PST
Join Olympic National Park fisheries biologist, Patrick Crain, for a presentation about the health and status of the Lake Ozette freshwater ecosystem. Home to a unique population of Sockeye Salmon listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act and the endemic Ozette Mud Minnow, the freshwater ecosystem of Lake Ozette is under threat. Invasive clams, degradation of shoreline habitat, and changes in predator behavior are among the impacts that are being evaluated. Also, Pat Crain will be sharing some actions that the park and volunteers are taking to mitigate these impacts and help the lake.
