Explosions and Whitewater…Learn about Dam Removal

Old and obsolete dams are starting to be removed throughout the Northwest, opening new stretches of rivers to spawning salmon and river runners.

Come and watch two entertaining documentary short films about recent dam removal success stories on the Sandy River, OR and Trout Creek of the Wind River, WA and join in a discussion afterwards.

There will be experts in the field present, like Paul Peirce–a Chair of the Skamania County Commission, James Dean–the demolition contractor that removed Hemlock Dam, and Bengt Coffin–a hydrologist with the USFS who put the Hemlock Dam removal project together.

The event is free and there will be two showings. We would love to see you there!

Tuesday, June 22nd at 7pm in the White Salmon Library
Thursday, June 24th at 7pm in the Hood River Springhouse Cellar, located in the parking lot of Mt. Hood RR.
