String Cheese Incident: Sometimes A River by artists4action published on 2013/04/25 23:48:10 +0000 Once, sixteen million salmon migrated almost 1000 miles each year up the Columbia River, making their way back to their birth stream. Now, as few as 2% of the returning numbers are wild salmon. This icon of the Pacific Northwest faces many imminent threats from climate change to overfishing and habitat loss. The only way to save the salmon now is by protecting the last wild salmon. Every Species of Wild Salmon Faces Extinction Artsists4Action is proud to showcase an amazing collaboration of local and international artists on our first CD release, Songs for the River, in honor of the mighty rivers and sweet salmon that run her course. All profits from this album will be donated to the Columbia Riverkeeper who’s advocacy for the Northwest Salmon reaches into the heart of the issue.
