Historic dam removal paves the way for salmon and tribal revival in California’s Klamath River

In a groundbreaking move, the Klamath River in California is undergoing the largest dam removal in history, heralding a new era for the region. After two decades of dedicated advocacy and legal battles, four hydroelectric dams are being dismantled. This monumental effort, done in collaboration with tribal nations, will reinvigorate the river’s ecosystem, allowing wild Pacific salmon to return to their historic spawning grounds after a century. This momentous project, set to restore both nature and tribal traditions, is a testament to the power of environmental restoration and partnership.
