PULLMAN — Jerry White, Snake River landscape coordinator for the Save Our Wild Salmon coalition, will present “A River Lost, A River Found” at 7 p.m. on April 23 in WSU’s Smith Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE), room 202.
The presentation is part of the Working Snake River Project and is cohosted by the WSU Museum of Anthropology and Friends of the Clearwater.
Historic photographs, taken between 1905 and 1970, document the dramatic canyon landscape of a free-flowing lower Snake River, before the Ice Harbor, Lower Monumental, Little Goose and Lower Granite dams became operational.
The collection of images from Inland Northwest museums and historical societies, including the Museum of Anthropology at WSU, is intended to stimulate public dialogue on management of the lower Snake River, its landscape and salmon runs now and in the future.
The Working Snake River Project is managed by Save Our Wild Salmon, a coalition of sport-fishing groups and businesses, conservation organizations, commercial fishermen, clean energy advocates, taxpayer groups and others working to restore healthy wild salmon and steelhead runs on the Columbia and Snake rivers.
An open dialogue session will follow the presentation. The event is free to all.
