WaterWatch of Oregon is proud of our role in the dam removal efforts happening along The Rogue River. Of course, many other organizations have played key roles in these projects.
Some of these efforts have been highlighted in a short video made by The Conservation Alliance via Uncage the Soul Productions that includes interviews with Jim McCarthy, our Southern Oregon Program Director. The Rogue is one of the finest refuges for salmon in the Pacific Northwest in part because of these dam removal—and other river protection—efforts. We couldn’t have pursued our role without the support of The Conservation Alliance—and with the support of our incredible individual members. Restoring connectivity by removing obsolete dams between the ocean and the best protected, coldest, and most intact river reaches for fish reproduction is a key to salmon survival in a climate changed world.
