Take Action: Snake River Dams

President Biden and Northwest leaders: Keep your promises, prevent extinction.

Northwest Leaders and President Biden:

It’s time to remove the four Lower Snake River dams and replace the services they provide. 

The science is clear: These dams make the river too hot for salmon, and dam removal is our last best chance to prevent the extinction of salmon and orcas while honoring Tribal rights and leadership. 

Please enact a plan for Lower Snake River Dam removal before the end of 2022. I appreciate your promises and leadership so far. But as salmon and orca populations sink towards extinction, we need action. 

Want to Do More? Here are some ideas: 
  • Call: Nothing beats a phone call for that personal touch. Use this tool to find phone numbers for your elected representatives, and let them know Snake River dam removal matters to you. 
  • Write: Send a Letter to The Editor of your local newspaper in support of Snake River Dam removal. LTEs let our leaders and fellow Northwesterners know that dam removal is important to their communities.  
  • Volunteer: Sign up to receive information from Columbia Riverkeeper about how to get involved and support Snake River dam removal.
  • Learn: Read why Snake River dam removal is both important and practical.

Salmon Are Dying from Hot Water
