Included here is the brochure created for the ride and handed out to over a thousand people along the way: roadside rest areas, campgrounds, public talks, schools, and wherever else I ran into people. I have also included various newspaper articles and other fun artifacts from the trip.
The purpose of the journey:
- meeting and promoting community groups and individuals dedicated to wild salmon conservation and stewardship throughout the North American range of Pacific salmon,
- supporting the formation of new groups and individual efforts for the conservation of wild salmon,
- speaking at public forums, municipal halls, schools, colleges, universities, kitchen tables, and with anyone who cares to listen, and
- mobilizing a strong powerful voice for wild salmon conservation.
In 2002, I was awarded a Canadian Environmental Award from Canadian Geographic and Environment Canada.
Here are some articles and artifacts (apologies for the sideways view on some – go to “View” in the menu then down to “rotate view” and rotate counterclockwise and then zoom in):
