Come ready to learn and engage with a wide host of people around issues like dam removal, treaty rights, climate change, salmon, and traditions.  Music, films and food in the evenings.

Field trips paddles, workshops filled with field trips, workshops, and fellowship along the river.

Restoring the lower Snake River by removing four aging dams is essential to return salmon and steelhead to healthy, harvestable numbers and protect our starving orca.  Now is the time to come together to learn and take action for salmon, tribes, orca and our communities.
