Environmental Stewardship

We value our commitment to safeguarding the lands and waterways we all enjoy. We are proud of the work we do to restore our rivers, protect our fish and birds, and preserve the history of the places we call home.

Fish and Aquatic Life

Our commitment to conserving fish began with the salmon and steelhead hatchery program, starting shortly after construction of Brownlee Dam more than 50 years ago.

That’s good for fish and other creatures and bad for unwanted moss.
