A Final Step Looms for the Largest-Ever Dam Removal 

River Management Roundtable 

Join us for a discussion about the next, final step that will make way for the largest dam removal in U.S. history! Karuk Tribe Natural Resources Policy Consultant Craig Tucker will provide his perspective on the 2023 removal of four PacifiCorp Dams on the Klamath River that have blocked salmon and steelhead migration for over 100 years. This multiple dam removal will open over 400 miles of the river and tributaries to spawning and rearing by Chinook salmon, coho salmon and steelhead trout. It will also redefine recreation and restore a core connection to nature for the Karuk and Yurok tribes.

Learn more in a recent article in the RMS Journal titled "Hope on the Horizon -- Klamath Dams to Come Down Next Year" by Craig Tucker (p. 14).
