DamNation tells the story of the 20th century dam building boom in the Lower 48, and explores the growing effort to remove dams and the growing awareness that America’s future is bound to the life and health of free-flowing rivers. Ultimately, the film is about hope, resilience and action. DamNation has received acclaim across the country, including the Audience Choice Award at its premiere at the SXSW Festival.

The momentum from successful dam removal projects on the Elwha and White Salmon rivers has highlighted opportunities for more river restorations, specifically on the lower Snake River in eastern Washington. Removing four dams on the Lower Snake can restore a river and its endangered wild salmon, reconnect communities and breathe new life into communities along the lower Snake River and its tributaries.

Please join us for a wild salmon reception and a screening of the award-winning film, DamNation. Learn more about the lower Snake River and its one-of-a-kind salmon, what’s at stake and how you can help.
