Why do people care that many salmon runs in the Northwest are on the verge of extinction? Six concerned Oregonians give their own views about why they're involved - in various ways - in helping restore salmon and their watersheds. Watershed council leader, conservationist, Indian poet, private landowner, writer of the Oregon Salmon Plan, a local elected official - they all talk candidly and personally, outside the label of their backgrounds and roles. Their thoughtful comments affirm the deep connection that many people feel to the place of salmon in the region and our place with them, now and in the future.
