Twenty youth representing the four Columbia River tribes gathered on the Nez Perce Reservation at Camp Wittman July 13-17 for this year’s CRITFC Salmon Camp. The participants learned about salmon biology, stream ecology, tradtional tribal ecological knoweldge, and Nez Perce culture. They got to ride appaloosa horses, go on a jet boat ride up the Snake River into Hells Canyon to see ancient petroglyphs, and see tribal salmon restoration sites. The camp is part of CRITFC’s workforce development program, which has a goal of helping young tribal members get into science fields to become tomorrow’s leaders who will work to protect the First Foods and other natural resources.
