The Elwha River is resurgent with new life thanks to the largest dam removal project anywhere in the world. A true watershed-scale recovery, Elwha River Chinook are swimming once again to the feet of the Olympic Mountains, with 70 miles of habitat reopened to them. Come hear the unfolding story of the Elwha’s renewal with award-winning author Lynda V. Mapes. Mapes, a Seattle Times reporter, is an associate of the Harvard Forest of Harvard University and was recognized by NOAA Fisheries in 2016 with the prestigious Dr. Nancy Foster Habitat Conservation Award.
