If you haven’t seen it yet, head over to Saturday’s Oregonian and read the editorial submitted by Governor Kitzhaber in which he announced his commitment to opening a stakeholder dialogue to recover wild salmon and steelhead in the Columbia Basin.
The state of Oregon is ready to come to the table with other key parties and work toward a lasting agreement that avoids litigation and that provides a stable environmental and economic foundation for our hydro system, one where thriving salmon runs coexist with reliable and affordable electric power.
With Kitzhaber’s support, this is an exciting time for fisheries conservation in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Please take a minute to send a thank you to Governor Kitzhaber for his commitment to recovering steelhead and salmon in the Columbia Basin. Our friends at Save Our Wild Salmon have you covered with a form letter that only takes a second to fill out.
