Should three dams on the lower Snake River be removed to help salmon survive? The Northwest dam system generates 40% of America's hydropower; conversely, the Snake is the largest source of our salmon.

Speakers include: Nancy Hirsh, executive director of the NW Energy Coalition; Kurt Miller, executive director of Northwest River Partners; Todd True, staff attorney for Earth Justice; and Shannon Wilson, vice chair, Nez Perce Tribal Executive Committee.
