The Flotilla Returns...

The Floatilla is back...

The 4th annual Free the Snake Flotilla returns September 7th and 8th to Chief Timothy Park just outside of Lewiston/Clarkson.

It's a celebration of what could be if we'd allow the lower Snake River return to it's former glory.

The artery of the west deserves to be reconnected.   It deserves to behave as a river

The economic sense for Little Goose, Lower Granite, Lower Monumental and Ice Harbor is hanging by a thread.  So far this year, these dams are operating at a 23 million dollar loss and counting

Over the past 20 + years rate and taxpayers have dropped hundreds of millions of dollars in salmon and steelhead mitigation costs with no real net gain.

What's the definition of insanity?

Last year over 400 people rowed to the base of Lower Granite to express their opinion to the matter.

I am a reluctant activist but I have never been so proud to have been a part of last year's 400.  Watching people from all walks of life come together united in the message.  Farmers, activists, anglers, river runners, salmon and orca advocates in was something to see.

Will you join us this year?
