The Yukon Salmon Resiliency Conference took place in Whitehorse, Yukon November 20-22, 2018. It was a great success with 100 attendees registered from Yukon First Nation Governments, Renewable Resources Councils, Management Agencies, not for profits and the public. The four strategic themes, including a special afternoon of storytelling and a multi-media presentation and numerous presenters from throughout the Yukon and British Columbia, added to what was a unique meeting of the resilient salmon people in Yukon. A special thank you to the Pacific Salmon Foundation for supporting this event as well as the many presenters, steering committee, conference organizers, facilitator, Salmon in the Schools program, and Eugene Alfred for his Salmon's Journey artwork. Finally, thank you for your interest in Yukon Salmon!
