Wild Salmon Center


To conserve healthy wild salmon rivers for the benefit of wildlife, communities, and economies. WSC is working to protect key parts of the Tillamook, Clatsop, and Elliott state forests, ensuring they continue to provide clean water, wildlife habitat, and recreation.

Bottom Line for Portland

During the past year, WSC helped stop the privatization of the Elliott State Forest, secured a statewide ban on harmful suction-dredge mining practices in salmon-bearing streams, and launched a campaign to designate a 17-mile stretch of the Nehalem River as a State Scenic Waterway.

“We support WSC because they not only defend Oregon’s wild salmon from emerging threats, they’re invested in improving management practices and increasing long-term protections for public forests and rivers. And they have a track record to prove their strategy works.”
