Two dams on the Elwha River disrupted the flow of sediment to the Strait of Juan de Fuca for nearly 100 years, contributing to erosion of the Elwha River delta, and altering coastal habitat. At the June Tacoma Science Café, join Washington Sea Grant’s Ian Miller to explore how researchers are tracking how the coastal ecosystem will respond after dam removal. Download the flyer (PDF)
