On New England’s Kennebec and the Pacific NW’s Snake, four dams stand between native salmon and critical spawning and rearing habitat. Dam removal is critical to prevent salmon extinction on both coasts. This presentation and panel Q&A will cover why these dams are causing such a problem, what’s being done to move dam removal forward, and steps you can take to support the effort.
