This is a non Confluence event.

Chum salmon once thrived in the Columbia River, with around 1.4 million chum returning each year from the Pacific Ocean to particular spawning locations to lay their eggs and complete their life cycle. Today, the river’s chum salmon population is one of only two U.S. runs listed as threatened.

You’re invited to join Columbia Land Trust Executive Director Glenn Lamb for a presentation and Q&A to learn about this unique salmon species, their epic journey from the Pacific Ocean to the shores of the Columbia, and what Columbia Land Trust is doing to help protect critical spawning habitat.
