Dutch Salmon - Saving the Gila

Event -
Dutch Salmon of Gila Conservation Coalition presents a slide show and Q&A at WNMU detailing the threat of a diversion dam that would cause irreparable harm to the Gila River, New Mexico's last wild, free flowing river.

Dutch Salmon founded the Gila Conservation Coalition (GCC) in 1984. He is a member of the New Mexico State Game Commission and Board Member of the New Mexico Wildlife Federation. Dutch is the author of seven outdoor books including Gila Descending, Country Sports, and the novel Home is the River. He has canoed, hiked, and fished the river from its source at Bead Spring to Safford, Arizona, and his experience makes him one of the few authorities on the Gila River in New Mexico.

Organized in 1984 to protect the free flow of the Gila and San Francisco Rivers and the wilderness characteristics of the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness areas, the Gila Conservation Coalition (GCC) is a partnership of local environmental and conservation groups and concerned individuals that promote conservation of the Upper Gila River Basin and surrounding lands. The GCC was instrumental in stopping the Hooker and Conner Dam proposals in the 1980s. The group also achieved protection of the East Fork of the Gila River from road building and partial closure of the wild San Francisco River to ORV use.
