North Olympic Land Trust is pleased to be a sponsor for the local screening of The Memory of Fish — an award-winning documentary portrait of one man, the wild salmon he loves, and his fight to free a river.
Dick Goin and his family have been fed by the Elwha River’s salmon since migrating to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula during the Dust Bowl. Dick has never forgotten his debt to the fish — who have been steadily disappearing.
A pulp mill worker and master fisherman turned salmon advocate, Dick uses his memories and persistence to battle for the biggest dam removal project in U.S. history.
His goal: bring the salmon home.
The Land Trust honored the late Dick Goin (1931-2015) at its 2016 Conservation Breakfast with the “Out Standing in the Field” award for his dedication to the North Olympic Peninsula’s rivers and fish. You can still enjoy the words of Dick by listening to his speech at the 1983 “Olympic Wild Fish Conference”
