As you know, IDA is hard at work to set the record straight about the maligned sea lions who are being scapegoated and killed by wildlife agencies for simply eating fish in a misguided program that will not work to bring back the salmon.
We will meet at the IDA office, and for a $5 donation, catch a ride together on the Cool Bus, a biodiesel activist-mover, and ride together on a scenic drive up the Columbia River Gorge to the Bonneville Dam. There we will meet up with the volunteers who have been keeping a 24-hour vigil for the sea lions from the "Sea Wolf," an RV mobile monitoring station painted with a beautiful mural depicting salmon and sea lions swimming.
The agenda: After a quick tour of the site and question and answer about the volunteer monitoring, activists we will take time to spot sea lions. With a pint of brew in hand, learn more about the campaign at an informal talk, and then we'll get down to the business of fun, friends and food!
