Wild Salmon & Steelhead News (September 2016)

(1) UPDATE: “Free the Snake” 2016 Flotilla is a huge success!

(2) COMING VERY SOON: Public Hearings on Salmon and Dams – Fall 2016 in the Northwest

free.the.snakeOur latest issue of the Wild Salmon and Steelhead News focuses on highlights from last Saturday’s amazing 2nd Annual “Free the Snake” Flotilla on the lower Snake River near Clarkston (WA) and Lewiston (ID).

And gives you a heads up - and asks you to GEAR UP to participate - in the rapidly approaching Northwest Public Hearings on Columbia-Snake River salmon and dams. This is a critical opportunity to build public pressure and political support for restoring endangered wild salmon and steelhead by removing the four lower Snake River dams.


(1) UPDATE: “FREE THE SNAKE” 2016 Flotilla - a huge success!

First the Flotilla: On Saturday, SOS, Friends of the Clearwater, the Nez Perce Tribe, Idaho Rivers United, Patagonia, Sierra Club, Mosquito Fleet and the Backbone Campaign and a whole lot of other groups, people, businesses, and tribal members gathered on the banks of the lower Snake River in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley in solidarity and support for restoring endangered salmon and restoring the lower Snake River by removing four costly, deadly, federal dams.

Wild Salmon & Steelhead News - May/June 2016

sos.logo1It’s been a whirlwind since the court ruled on May 4th – invalidating the federal agencies’ latest plan for endangered wild salmon and steelhead in the Columbia/Snake Basin. We’ve spent time in Washington D.C. meeting with Congressional offices and Obama administration officials; we’re connecting and reconnecting with allies and partners to plan our joint work together in the weeks and months ahead; we’re responding to media interest and communications projects; and with our Orca-Salmon Alliance partners, we kicked off Orca Awareness Month on June 5th.

As a result, it’s now mid-June and we’re still catching up on various projects – including an overdue issue of the Wild Salmon & Steelhead News. Here is it.

Enjoy this issue – it’s longer than usual - packed with lots of great information, recent developments and a look at what’s ahead. Following on the heels of this terrific ruling, we look forward to working closely with you in the weeks and months ahead to seize this opportunity to recover salmon, restore healthy rivers, and rebuild communities. We'll be reaching out to ask for your engagement, support and energy like never before!

"FREE THE SNAKE!" 
October 2015

This issue of Wild Salmon & Steelhead News reviews two big events that SOS recently organized in partnership with some of our close coalition and business partners. Below you’ll find a summary of both events followed by a series of links to articles, videos, actions, and further information.

FREE THE SNAKE FLOTILLA AND RALLY: First, on Saturday October 3, SOS worked with the Friends of the Clearwater, Patagonia, Mountain Gear, the Nez Perce Tribe, Idaho Rivers United, orca advocates and others to organize a first-of –its-kind rally on the banks of the lower Snake River near Pullman in eastern Washington State. The Free the Snake Flotilla attracted more than 350 people from across the Northwest. We brought our boats and paddled three miles down the “Snake Lake” to within spitting distance of Lower Granite Dam. Once we all assembled there, we held a rally on the water – cheering and chanting for the removal of four deadbeat dams and the restoration of one of America’s great salmon river systems.
