    About the Ripples Newsletter

    Through the GRMW Education Outreach Program we have developed Ripples in the Grande Ronde, a quarterly newsletter that is distributed through Union and Wallowa county's local newspapers as an insert.

    The newsletter highlights collaborative projects in the Grande Ronde Basin, serves as a media source for other natural resource agencies, and includes a variety of water-related information equally interesting to adults and children. You may select newsletters below and view them in PDF format. If you would like a printed copy of the Ripples, contact the GRMW office.

      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.
