Event Details

Fifty years ago, the United States and Canada ratified the Columbia River Treaty to jointly manage hydropower production and flood management.  Our region’s dam-building era, of which the Treaty is a cornerstone, has delivered important benefits to the Northwest – including Seattle.  But the Treaty has also caused catastrophic harm to the river’s health, and communities on both sides of the international border.

Four expert panelists will share their unique perspectives and stories about how this 50-year old Treaty has impacted basin communities and offer their insights into what an updated, modernized Treaty must do to right historic wrongs — sustaining and restoring the Columbia River and the people who rely on the river in this time of climate change.

This event is open to the public | $5 suggestion donation
Doors open at 5:30 for informal reception with food and drinks.
Program begins at 6:30
