Salmon's story flows in films

The Clinton Street Theater will show three salmon-related films on Jan. 27 to raise awareness and funds for two community programs.

The event is a fundraiser for the Native American Youth and Family Center and Save our Wild Salmon, a Portland nonprofit.

The films start at 3 p.m. on Jan. 27, and tickets are a sliding donation of $7 to $10; $2 to $5 from each ticket will go directly to the two beneficiaries.

The films include:

n “River as Spirit — Rebirth of the Elwha,” a story about the Elwha River in Washington state, which is in the midst of the largest dam removal project for salmon recovery in the world.

n “Buried in Sawdust for 50 Years,” which chronicles a salmon recovery project that took place in Discovery Bay, Wash.

n “Saving Puget Sound One Watershed at a Time,” the story of a community’s efforts to preserve and restore a forest, a salmon stream, and Puget Sound in Washington state.

The filmmakers from Leaping Frog films will be on hand for a discussion and signing of their DVDs.
