Kevin Shaffer, fisheries branch program manager, will discuss the potential effects of climate change on salmon and steelhead runs in the American River. Whitney Albright, a climate associate, will cover the steps the department is taking to reduce the effects of climate change and the actions needed to manage the fish runs. Both speakers will answer questions from the audience.

The event will be held at the Nimbus Hatchery Visitor Center, 2001 Nimbus Road in Rancho Cordova, on Thursday at 7 p.m. Preregistration is not required.

The Nimbus hatchery is open to the public daily free of charge until 3 p.m. The hatchery offers hands-on exhibits, a river bluff trail and a play area for children.
