Tours, educational talks, music, food and a tribal canoe paddle
September 20th-22nd
Hell’s Gate State Park, Lewiston, Idaho

Join tribal members, anglers, boaters, orca lovers and other river advocates for a gathering on the lower Snake river in support of removing the 4 lower Snake River dams for salmon, for people, for orcas. Come ready to learn and engage with fellow river and salmon advocates on river restoration, dam removal, treaty rights, climate change, salmon, and traditions. Evening activities will include music, food, and a Saturday evening screening of the new film Dammed To Extinction. Friday and Saturday will be 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. Now is the time to come together to learn and take action for salmon, tribes, orca and our communities.
