Oregon Snares More Federal Money For Salmon Recovery

John R. McMillan/NOAA Fisheries

Oregon has been spending millions of dollars to make life easier for salmon, and there's more spending on the way.  The state just announced $15 Million on the way from the Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund

The federal money from the fund gets a state match, with grants distributed by the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.  We get an overview of the more than half-Billion dollars spent over the last two decades, and a look ahead to the kinds of projects likely to receive grants in this latest round.
