Wild Salmon Center

Celebrating over 20 years of healthy wild salmon rivers

The mission of Wild Salmon Center is to promote the conservation and sustainable use of wild salmon ecosystems across the Pacific Rim. We identify science-based solutions to sustain wild salmonids and the human communities and livelihoods that depend on them.


O and C Lands

The Oregon and California Lands (O&C Lands) comprise approximately 2.6 million acres of federal lands providing clean drinking water to almost two million Oregonians, healthy habitat to some of the most productive wild salmon rivers in the Pacific Northwest, vital fish and wildlife habitat and many of our finest recreation areas in the state. WSC is working with the Coalition for Our O & C Lands and Senator Ron Wyden to seek a balanced management approach to these lands that will protect our watersheds and forests.
