Description: Healthy Rivers Connect Humans and Ecosystems
James Nash says he is part trout. Growing up on a ranch in the Wallowa Valley of northeast Oregon, he disappeared as often as he could to the banks of the Wallowa River, which runs for more than two miles through his family’s land. Once, while exploring the bottomland, he discovered some old ruts and grooves in the ground. “At first I didn’t know what they were,” he said. “But even as an 8-year-old, I could tell those channels would be better fishing.” He had found an old natural channel of the Wallowa River.
Keywords: riparian restoration, ranching, collaboration, rural communities.
