      People Restoring Rivers

      In 2009, the GRMW teamed up with Green Fire Productions to create a documentry of the Six Ranch Restoration project called "The Best Country".

      Today we have a great opportunity to restore salmon and steelhead habitat in northeastern Oregon.

      In The Best Country two longtime Wallowa valley ranching families tell their stories about restoring salmon and steelhead habitat on their land.
