    IMNH Cosponsors “Idaho Salmon in Hot Water”   Pocatello, ID – The Idaho Museum of Natural History, in conjunction with Idaho Rivers United, is pleased to present “Idaho Salmon In Hot Water: Salmon recovery in an era of climate change.” The program will be held on Tuesday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Classroom 204.   Kyle Dittmer, a hydrologist-meteorologist for the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, will explore topics such as how climate change may impact Idaho’s endangered salmon, which salmon populations stand the best chance of surviving climate change, and whether or not changes in water supply and rainfall hurt salmon and steelhead.   Dittmer has BS degrees from the University of Washington in Geology and Oceanography, and an MS degree in Geology from Eastern Washington University. He is also president of the Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society and has given over 36 climate change talks around the region.   For more information on the presentation, contact Kristin Fletcher at the Idaho Museum of Natural History at (208) 282-2262.
