Join photographer Peter Marbach as he shares stories and imagery from his current project documenting the landscapes and culture of the entire 1,250 Columbia, as well as discusses the importance of the current Columbia River Treaty re-negotiations. The Columbia River flowed for thousands of years in a natural state of astounding beauty and was the place of a miraculous, ancient migration of Pacific salmon that came all the way home to the headwaters. The era of dams brought great contributions including clean hydropower, flood control, and irrigation that created a rich agricultural bounty for the Northwest. In 1964, the U.S. and Canada enacted a 50 year treaty that focused on these benefits but did not address the restoration of ecosystems and the impact on tribal nations.
