Rotary Lunch Program: Pelton Round Butte Fish Committee Roadmap

  On Tuesday, November 12th 2019, our lunch program will be the Pelton Round Butte Fish Committee Roadmap, presented by Megan Hill from PGE and Jason Grant from the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. The “Fish Committee Roadmap” is the plan for restoring salmon and steelhead runs in the Deschutes River.

Megan Hill is the natural resources manager for Portland General Electric at the Pelton Round Butte
Hydroelectric Project on the Deschutes River, Oregon. Megan has over fifteen years of experience in
fisheries, including employment in academia, a federal agency, and PGE. She has a B.A. in Biology and
Environmental Studies from Knox College, an M.S. in Environmental Science from Washington State
University, and post-graduate fisheries work at the University of Georgia.

Jason Grant attended Oregon State University where he majored in Fisheries and Wildlife Science. He has
worked in the Fisheries field for over 12 years, beginning as a Fisheries Technician with the Forest Service
on the Siuslaw Ranger District, then moving to the Willamette National Forest. Upon the realization that
seasonal work does not support a mortgage payment, he accepted a Fish Habitat Biologist position with
the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla – La Grande Field Office. In this position, Jason furthered his
knowledge of aquatic restoration practices. In early 2011, he accepted a position with the Confederated
Tribes of the Warm Springs. In both positions, he has managed many active and passive stream
restoration projects, as well as coordinated and developed relationships with project partners. When
he’s not working, you might find Jason poorly casting his spey rod while swinging flies for steelhead,
gardening or hiking with his family.

Join us from noon till 1:15 at the Riverhouse (the restaurant side, NOT the Convention Center), 3075 N Hwy 97, Bend, OR 97703.
