Cool. That's the first college that came to mind. I went there for grad school (1985-87).
I know a few guys on the frontline of this fight. Suction dredge mining is one of the nastiest things that can happen to a river. This is a big win.
I've seen it on the Yakima.
While you are considering this momentous decision, google The Tongass Amerca's Salmon Forest and sign the petition to set aside 77 small tracts in our largest national forest to protect salmon and steelhead spawning and rearing areas, and make a bunch of fish, G Smolt and me happy. Believe it or not, even the USFS favors this project.
Yeah, Derek, I am pretty engaged in this issue. Last summer I saw a suction dredge rig at the WDFW site east of Cle Elum on the Yak. I've seen a lot of them on the small creeks along Blewitt, and of course on the Wenatchee, but this was a first on the Yakima.
Finally that mining law got knocked down a bit. It baffles me that it has stood unchanged for so long.
Ah, those Humboldt Honeys! My daughter graduated from Humboldt in 2012 in wildlife ecology (finally) after years of being lured away by CA DFG with all sorts of really neat internships and temp jobs.
