Happy Holidays to All of Our Friends and Supporters!


* Yes, this is a Holiday Darter and thanks Derek for the great photo!*

All of us at CFI wanted to wish each and every one of you a Happy Winter Solstice and Holiday season! We very much appreciate all of the support you have shown us over the years. We are very excited about the upcoming year. We will have some new faces here to help us and will introduce them all sometime after the first of the year. Many of our projects will continue in addition to several new ones we have picked up along the way. This work can be very rewarding, discouraging, encouraging, enlightening, frustrating and sometimes down right fun! All in all, I believe we are fortunate to be involved in the protection, recovery and monitoring of some of the most interesting creatures in the world! I would like to personally thank all of our supporting agencies and organizations! We certainly could not continue this work without you!

One of my personal goals this coming year is to do a better job of keeping all of you better informed with what we are doing both in the hatchery and in the field! Hold me to it and fuss at me if I don't. ;-)

Hope to see you either here or in person in 2018. Have a Happy New Year!
