Western salmon states, fishing businesses, conservation groups and Northwest tribes have been in litigation over federal dams and wild salmon protection in the Columbia Basin for almost two decades. Now is the time for all stakeholders to come together and create a new approach to salmon restoration.
Wind & Salmon Connection
Wild salmon and wind energy work together well in the Northwest, as sustainable resources and job creators. But the Obama administration's present management of our Rivers doesn't reflect this natural partnership. We're working to change that.
Salmon Mean Business
Salmon are a critical part of the northwest economy, supporting a diverse set of industries including fishing, tourism, renewable energy, and outdoor retailers that bring billions to the northwest and create thousands of jobs. A healthy environment means a healthy economy and the threats salmon face threaten us all.

The wild salmon and steelhead of the Northwest are an incredible story of nature. When dinosaurs roamed the earth, salmon were swimming in our waters. Snake River salmon travel more than 900 miles inland and climb almost 7,000 feet to reach their spawning grounds – making them truly one of a kind.
