Rethink Dams recently formed to establish a community at Whitman and in the larger Walla Walla region set on building support for the removal of the lower Snake River Dams. Now is the time to act for on behalf of Northwest salmon and the ecosystems they support, wasted tax dollars, and the environmental and economic security of our riverside communities. We aim to petition lawmakers and influence policy from Washington State to Washington D.C. As student-scientists, white-water enthusiasts, promoters of environmental justice, and general lovers of the outdoors, we see it as our duty to act in this critical time.
