The White Salmon River Runs Free

OPB and Maser Films Present

The White Salmon River Runs Free

Join us for the premier of this OPB Oregon Field Guide Special featuring the removal of Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington–the largest completed dam removal project in the world. You’ve seen the viral video of the dam blowing up, now come see the rest of the story. This will be the first public showing of the 18-month dam deconstruction timelapse footage, so don’t miss it!

Stick around after the show for discussion and a Q&A with:
• Andy Maser, Filmmaker, on the making of the film and timelapse
• Rod Engle, Fish Biologist, on what’s next for salmon on the White Salmon River
• Larry Moran, Condit Deconstruction Project Manager, on the mechanics of dam removal
• Todd Olson from PacifiCorp and Brett VandenHeuvel from Columbia Riverkeeper on the future of dam removal and renewable hydropower in the Pacific NW
