The Greatest Migration follows the extraordinary journey of Snake River salmon from the waters of southeast Alaska to the rivers of Idaho’s Sawtooth Valley. These salmon travel higher and farther than any other salmon species on earth – swimming over 900 miles and climbing almost 7,000 feet to reach their spawning grounds.
Save Our Wild Salmon and EP Films will officially premiere The Greatest Migration at the 2011 Wild & Scenic Film Festival in January.
“The outdoor industry is not only inspired by wild places. We take an active role in protecting them,” says Chris Enlow, Care and Community Manager of KEEN. “The Columbia River is in our backyard and it’s imperative that we speak up for wild salmon. If we lost them, we would lose a crown jewel of our ecosystem.”
