Mission Statement

To restore the environment with the strong arms and minds of ECC members.To Educate and train Corps members, inspire them, and open doors to future employment; and to strengthen communities by improving economic opportunity and restoring pride of place.

Description

Salmon Corps began with the goal of utilizing the Native American community in the Pacific Northwest to repair disappearing salmon habitats of the Columbia River Basin. Through the incorporation of native alnguages, tribal environmental knowledge, and cutting edge science and technology into the program, young people are reclaiming connections to their communities, history, and rivers. This approach serves a dual purpose by rehabilitating both salmon and young people from the tribal communities of the area- many of which are facing severe social and economic challenges. As historical stewards of salmon, tribal people have stepped forward to protect and restore the salmon; an integral part of the Northwest Tribe's culture, religion, and sustainability.
