March 18, 2010: Healthy Rivers & Farms With Salmon-Safe Eco-Labels and Wildlife Habitat
In the early 1980's the Snoqualamie River and its tributaries produced more coho salmon than the entire west coast of Oregon. By 2001, however, the Snoqualamie was designated as one of America's "10 most endangered rivers" by American Rivers. Today the farmland adjacent the river and densely populated Seattle metropolitan area, is fast becoming a landscape with not only viable farms but significant ecological features with some of the healthiest salmon runs in Washington State.
