Salmon recovery and democracy discussed

The success of local decision-making in salmon recovery in Washington will be the topic of a campuswide lecture by William D. Ruckelshaus, the first and fifth administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and current chairman of the Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board.

“There is a massive experiment in democracy going on in our state, and it involves salmon and their survival,” said Ruckelshaus, who now lives in Seattle. “We are leaving it up to the people who share habitat with the fish to decide how to help them recover, and it is working.”

Ruckelshaus’ lecture, “Salmon Recovery: A New Application of Democracy,” will run from 2-4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Food Science and Human Nutrition Building, Room T-101. WSU Extension, the Division of Governmental Studies and Services and the Thomas Foley Institute are sponsoring the event.
