Glen Spain Part II: Freeing the Klamath River
Dam removal efforts advance on Oregon coastal river
After decades of legal and political wrangling, four dams on the Klamath River are now set for removal, reopening the river for restoration of salmon runs that were nearly destroyed— along with the people who depend on them. The innovative public-private financing that made this possible could be a model for future restoration efforts along the West Coast. Glen Spain, a leader in restoration effort on behalf of salmon fishermen, recounts the long struggle in this interview with cohost Brad Warren.
