Day 28: So long to the Silver State!

Before hitting the road on the Extinction Stops Here road show for salmon recovery this summer, we knew that we would be taking our time here in the Silver State.

Nevada's Senator, Majority Leader Harry Reid, is an important figure in shaping the future of our country, and that means he has an opportunity to help shape the future of salmon and salmon-dependent communities in the Northwest. We made sure to stop by Senator Reid’s office while in Reno, where we were joined by Andy Mitchell from Patagonia.

The Senator's Regional Representative, Matt Tuma, was there to greet us and talk about our campaign. We made sure to stress the importance of Senator Reid’s role in addressing the Columbia-Snake Basin salmon crisis and the opportunities, both economic and cultural, of restored salmon and steelhead on the Snake River.

Time is of the essence for these fish and the communities that depend on them. Each conversation we have with key leaders like Senator Reid can bring about positive steps towards real solutions for the Northwest and the nation. We need Senator Reid’s help now, more than ever!

Take Action: Send an email to Senator Reid here!

Or contact his office:
  • Washington, D.C.: 202-224-3542

Thank the Senator for his tireless efforts to conserve our wild lands and ensure the sound management of our natural resources, both in Nevada and across the country. With Senator Reid's leadership we can find solutions to the salmon crisis in Columbia & Snake Rivers.

Urge him to take a lead in solving the Northwest Salmon crisis that affects taxpayers across the country!

On Monday, we bid farewell to the lovely state of Nevada, taking good memories and campaign momentum back to the Columbia & Snake Rivers.

We are now on our way to California’s capital city, Sacramento!

-Bobby, Jeremy, and Buddy
