The Washington State Salmon Recovery Funding Board will hold its ninth biennial conference April 18-19, 2023 in Vancouver, Washington.


The in-person event offers an exciting opportunity to display your organization’s projects, products, or programs and to connect one-on-one with people active in salmon recovery.


The theme of the 2023 Salmon Recovery Conference, A Shared Future, reflects the desire to hear unique perspectives about salmon recovery.

In 2023, we anticipate 650 attendees from throughout the region during the 2 days. Attendees include professionals from a variety of disciplines and geographies. The conference draws people from tribal, federal, state, and local governments; salmon recovery regional organizations and lead entities; regional fisheries enhancement groups; conservation districts; academia; utilities; businesses; commercial and recreational fishing interests; and nonprofits, as well as students, volunteers, and private landowners.
