Grantee Weekly Grind: Hey Portlanders! Join Save Our Wild Salmon For a Sneak Peak of “The Greatest Migration.”

In 2010, the Conservation Alliance awarded Save Our Wild Salmon a grant to restore wild salmon and steelhead populations in the Columbia and Snake Rivers by removing the lower Snake dams, and implementing a full spill/flow regime through Columbia River dams. Next week, join Save Our Wild Salmon and KEEN Footwear for a special sneak peek of EP Films' The Greatest Migration, a short documentary about the amazing journey of the Snake River's endangered salmon…

Snake River salmon travel more than 900 miles inland and climb almost 7,000 feet to reach their spawning grounds. The Greatest Migration explores this incredible feat, following their journey from the waters of southeast Alaska to the rivers of Idaho's Sawtooth Valley.

"Before we started filming, I had no idea the awesome feats these animals tackle to survive. Making this film was humbling," EP conservation filmmaker Andy Maser said. "I feel so incredibly lucky to be working on this issue. I certainly hope that this opportunity to get up close and personal and document their final journey home will help ensure their return from the Endangered Species List."
