July 11, 2011


style="font-size: 14pt">The Bonneville Power Administration, Yakama tribal officials, and others are proposing

to fund a coho salmon restoration in the Wenatchee and Methow River basins, and they want to hear your opinions

about it.


style="font-size: 14pt">The meetings are set for this Wednesday in Leavenworth, at the fire hall from 5:30 to

8pm, and Thursday at the Methow Valley Community Center from 5:30 to 8pm. 

Listen to

KOHO’s Clint Strand talk to BPA spokesman Doug Johnson and fish biologist Ben Zalinsky about the plan, why

this hatchery is nothing like the hatchery currently working up the Icicle River, the timeline for completion,

money involved, and more.
