Through April: Elwha photos at anthropology museum

PULLMAN, Wash. – A photographic exhibit about the Elwha River on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula is on display for free to the public, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. through the semester in the Washington State University Museum of Anthropology in College Hall.

The productive salmon and trout stream was dammed in 1911; the National Park Service removed the dams 2011-14.

The exhibit examines the impact of the river and dams on area habitat, fish and people – including the Native American population and culture.
