Save our Wild Salmon

Join us for an evening of "Wheat, Wine and Wild Salmon" (plus some good old-fashioned Northwest microbrews), as Save Our Wild Salmon returns to SEJ this year with its legendary smoked salmon reception. Stop by to chat about salmon, dam removal, global warming, endangered species, sustainable fisheries, renewable energy, the silencing of science and more. We'll be joined by fishermen from up and down the west coast, whose lives, livelihoods and communities are being hurt by bad salmon policy in key western watersheds like the Klamath and Columbia/Snake river basins. It's the human side of one of today's most critical environmental stories.

Save Our Wild Salmon is a nationwide coalition of conservation organizations, commercial and sportfishing associations, and taxpayer and clean energy advocates working to restore healthy and abundant wild salmon to the rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest.
