Abstract Text

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes have undertaken a large-scale watershed restoration project in an effort to benefit bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) in the Jocko River drainage. An important component of this comprehensive project is education and outreach. In this poster and an accompanying digital presentation we will give an overview of a multimedia information and education project that describes the ecology and importance of bull trout, the relationship between bull trout and the Salish and Pend d’Oreille people, and the Tribes’ current efforts to restore habitats. The project is composed of an integrated set of educational materials that will include an interactive DVD entitled “Explore the River: Bull Trout, Tribal People and the Jocko River”, a curriculum, a website, a storybook “Bull Trout’s Gift”, and an accompanying field journal to be published by the University of Nebraska Press.
