During this webcast, David spoke about mighty wild salmon of the Northwest.
The negative impacts of dams, worsened by our changing climate, are raising water temperatures and pushing these wild salmon closer to the brink of extinction. Yet a proposal to restore the Pacific Northwest’s Columbia River basin would lay the groundwork for the largest river and salmon restoration project in history. Will you consider standing with the Federation by urging Congress to act?
