Join us for the premiere of this Oregon Field Guide special featuring the removal of the Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington — the largest completed dam removal project in the world.

You've seen the viral video of the dam blowing up; now come see the rest of the story. This is the first public showing of the 18-month dam deconstruction time-lapse footage, so don't miss it!   

After the show there will be a discussion and a Q&A with:
• Andy Maser, filmmaker, on the making of the film and time lapse
• Rod Engle, fish biologist, on what’s next for salmon on the White Salmon River
• Larry Moran, Condit deconstruction project manager, on the mechanics of dam removal
• Todd Olson from PacifiCorp and Brett VandenHeuvel from Columbia Riverkeeper on the future of dam removal and renewable hydropower in the Pacific Northwest
