Free the Snake Flotilla 2017
September 8, 2017 - September 9, 2017
Last year more than 400 people throughout the Pacific Northwest came together in support of the return of a free flowing lower Snake River. This year boats will launch from Chief Timothy Park in Clarkston, Washington, and will paddle 3 miles west through the peaceful lower Snake River canyon before paddling back east to the park.
Join us September 8th and 9th, 2017 when we’ll say with one clear voice: it’s time to remove four outdated, low-value, deadbeat dams on the lower Snake River. It’s time to free the Snake!
