Jim Sedell, RCC author and pioneer researcher on the importance of wood in streams, passed away 18 August

Excerpt from The Oregonian:

"Sedell, James Russell 68 July 05, 1944 Aug. 18, 2012 Jim Sedell passed peacefully early Saturday morning, Aug. 18, beside his wife of 46 years, Ellen Sedell. James R. Sedell was born July 5, 1944 in Medford. Called "Sunny Jim" by his mother, he was known for his easy smile and ability to make friends wherever he went. As a child in Redmond, he loved fishing on the Metolius. His experience holding the last Chinook before the dam inspired a lifetime commitment to the preservation of fresh water fish and their habitats."
