Russ will share his recent SE Alaskan experience with photos of fishing, kayaking, and more in and around the Sitka area.

July Meeting Notes
Becky Winstead, a research assistant with the Institute for Marine Mammals Studies (IMMS) presented a slide-show that shared the rewarding work that IMMS does in Mississipi and Alabama. The impact on marine mamals in our area due to the recent BP Oil Spill was a major topic of the Q & A session that followed. To volunteer or for more information on IMMS, see: hppt://www.imms.org/

The Green River (Utah's Canyonlands National Park) slide-show that Maggie shared was awesome and full of beautiful photos!
