Elwha River in Washington

Picture by: John McMillan Picture taken on: July 9th, 2012

In 2011, NOAA assisted in the removal of two dams on the Elwha River, which was once the largest producer of salmon on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. After the removals, salmon now have access to pristine habitat within the Olympic National Park.
