Tours & Sightseeing

AFS 2011 meeting participants can sign up for one or more tours that showcase the diverse  fisheries research and conservation efforts that are currently underway in the region.   Eight unique tours lasting 3 to 11 hours each will feature an eclectic mix of innovative projects and facilities that support regional efforts to protect and manage our fisheries and aquatic resources.   The tours will be led by knowledgeable local biologists and managers who are directly involved in the featured projects.  As an added bonus, tour participants will enjoy some of the beautiful natural scenery for which the Pacific Northwest is justifiably famous.

Please note that registration for 2011 AFS Tours is on a first come basis; visit the page for the tour(s) in which you want to participate. Use the ‘Add to Cart’ button for each tour, then use the PayPal checkout button on the right sidebar to pay for the selected tour.

Tours are scheduled on the Saturday and Sunday (September 3-4) prior to the meeting, and on the Friday (September 9) following the meeting.  This is a great way to enjoy your extended trip to Seattle!  Tour costs cover bus transportation and, for the longer tours, a box lunch.  The number of seats available for each tour is limited, so don’t delay in making your reservation.
