Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Elwha River dam removal with the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe, as they host public presentations and discussions on Tuesday, August 30, from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm in Peninsula College’s Little Theater.
“Elwha Ecosystem Restoration – 10 Dam-Free Years and Counting” will highlight ways in which the Elwha River system is recovering and how the study of the river is advancing the science of dam removal and river restoration. A short film will highlight how dam removal and river restoration work is proceeding across the American West. Presentations will also focus on plans for major dam removals on the Klamath River in California, and on the growing movement – inspired in part by the Elwha – for dam removal in Europe.
Poster presentations by river restoration experts, environmental groups, and local students will highlight recent scientific discoveries and opportunities for community and citizen science involvement in long-term monitoring efforts. Light refreshments will be provided at a reception in ʔaʔkʷustəŋáw̕txʷ House of Learning, Peninsula College Longhouse.
