Technical Tour of Bonneville Dam
Symposium attendees will also enjoy a rare opportunity to tour the inner workings of this iconic hydroelectric dam and navigational lock that is part of the 350-mile Columbia/Snake River Inland navigation system. You will see the turbines and locks in action and witness the Corps’ efforts to promote fish (and eel!) passage. Due to security requirements, those wishing to participate in the tour must register for the symposium and provide the required I.D. prior to September 30, 2014. (See symposium website for more details.)
Exhibitor and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Consistent with the mission of the Portland, San Francisco, and Sacramento SAME Posts, symposium proceeds will support mentoring and college education scholarships.
Registration is now open! To register or see the latest symposium updates, visit the website. For answers to questions, contact symposium chair Toni Leon, FSAME, 503-643-8710 or send an email.
