    Actions are being planned for Lewiston, Boise, Bainbridge, Vashon, Spokane, Wenatchee, Portland, Seattle, Bellingham, Tacoma, Olympia and MORE! 

    Join the fun, and let's take action together, so that Southern Resident orca can get the food they need - chinook salmon from the Columbia-Snake system! It's past time to take out the 4 dams on the Lower Snake.

  • Our friends over at Snake River Savers are hosting a Flotilla!

    When: Saturday, June 24, 2023  10:00 AM

    Where: NE Green Lake Community Center  7351 East Green Lake Drive North, Seattle, WA 98115 US

    Host Contact Info: John Rosapepe [email protected]

    • Who: Salmon and orca advocates, conservationists, and people of goodwill, including you!

    • What: Rally for Salmon—A festive water event to raise awareness and show support for Snake River dam removal to help save our Southern Resident Killer Whales.

    Registration & training is from 10:00 am to 11:30 am with a paddle from the northeast dock over to the northwest inlet by the Boathouse Theater from 11:30 am to 1 pm —about a mile round trip. We will raise banners at both the northeast and northwest locations.

    • Why: To celebrate the gift of wild salmon, generate attention, and demonstrate strong public support for an upcoming decision by Northwest policymakers and the Biden Administration to un-dam the Lower Snake River and replace the dams’ services.

    Interested in renting a kayak or canoe for the Rally for Salmon?

    A limited number of kayaks and canoes are available for rent from the Green Lake Boathouse . It's first-come, first-serve!
