Happy World Rivers Day, Wild Salmon Supporters!
Salmon Beyond Borders is celebrating World Rivers Day all week long!
Celebrating our rivers may look different for many of us than in past years. Instead of joining community events to celebrate our rivers, clean water, wild salmon, jobs, and the ways of life they support, most of us are hunkering down at home. But don’t worry! We still have a few ways to commemorate World Rivers Day.
1. RSVP for our digital panel discussion!
Join Salmon Beyond Borders and Conservation Northwest Wednesday, September 30, at 5:00 - 6:30 PM AKST / 6:00 - 7:30 PM PT for a digital panel discussion about protecting transboundary rivers from British Columbia's irresponsibly regulated mines. We’re looking forward to hearing from representatives of the Upper Skagit Tribe, Lower Similkameen Indian Band, Colville Confederated Tribes, Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission, the science community and other important stakeholders during the panel.

3. Watch When the Salmon Spoke, a digital production that will transport you to the Stikine River. When the Salmon Spoke, presented by Southeast Alaska Indigenous Transboundary Commission and Ping Chong+Company, in collaboration with Skeena Wild Conservation Trust and Salmon Beyond Borders, premiered online on May 31, 2020. Featuring captivating life stories from community members of the Stikine River, stunning cinematic imagery, indigenous music, and visual art, this production connects coastal Tlingit and Haida communities and inland Tahltan communities of Alaska and British Columbia. Click here to watch When the Salmon Spoke and learn more!
Stay tuned on social media and watch your inboxes this month - we’ll continue to share more information about mine waste dams and ways to take action to defend our transboundary salmon rivers, jobs, and ways of life.
As always, your continued engagement is what makes our collective efforts possible. Reach out to us anytime. All of our voices from British Columbia to Alaska, Washington, Idaho, and Montana are needed to defend and sustain the wild rivers of the Salmon Coast.
Be healthy and well -
