2020 Conservationist of the Year

We are thrilled to announce that California’s renowned fish biologist and WRC board member, Dr. Peter Moyle, has been named Fly Fisherman magazine’s 2020 Conservationist of the Year! (Read the article in Fly Fisherman here.)

Peter has devoted his life to protecting California’s rivers and fish and going to bat for both for 50 years. His work has had an impact on streams and fish throughout California and the world.

Please join us on February 5th as we honor Peter at the historic Log Cabin in San Francisco’s Presidio.

Following the ceremony, Peter will give a short talk called Rising to the Challenge: Academics, anglers and river people working together to save our fish and rivers. 

Guests will include WRC President Sue Doroff, our friends from Simms and Fly Fisherman, members of WRC’s board and staff, and a great mix of folks from the Bay Area’s community of fly fishers and conservationists.
