Dam(n)ing the Chehalis

Lee First, Twin Harbors Waterkeeper, will present information on the little known Chehalis River, in southwest Washington. The Chehalis River is the largest watershed completely within the state of Washington, and is the only river that has no listed salmonids. It produces more salmon than any other river in the state, but it's salmon resources are less than 80% of what they once were. The Chehalis River is flood-prone and the Chehalis River Basin Flood Control Zone District and Lewis County commissioners want to dam the its headwaters. If a dam is built, the Spring and Fall Chinook that spawn upstream of the proposed dam site will likely go extinct.

A life-long canoeist, Lee paddled the Chehalis River from the headwaters to the ocean in May, 2019. She will tell the story of the amazing resources of the river, threats posed by the dam, development and forestry, as well as describe how restorative alternatives should be given full consideration before a dam is planned. Lee is the Twin Harbors Waterkeeper, and has worked as/with the North Sound Baykeeper and the Spokane Riverkeeper during the past 13 years. Twin Harbors Waterkeeper is a member of the International Waterkeeper Alliance, a group of over 350 Waterkeepers who work for drinkable, swimmable, fishable water around the world.
