River Of Kings, Part 1
series: Saving The Ocean
air date: 5/11/14 9:00 AM
For millennia, the Nisqually Indians relied on Chinook salmon caught in the Nisqually River. Now the river's wild Chinook are extinct, and the tribe runs a hatchery to keep their fishery going. But an unusual coalition of tribal leaders, private partners and government agencies is working to restore the river from top to bottom, from its source in the glaciers of Mount Rainier to the estuary that empties into Puget Sound. Led by the Nisqually tribe, the restoration aims to fill the river once again with abundant, magnificent wild salmon. In the restoration, urban rain gardens filter runoff and augment river flow, new logjams deepen and cool its waters and farms returned to marshland provide new places for young salmon to shelter and grow.
