Jim Huckabay - The Hidden World of the Yakima River Canyon: A “Lifeline” for All
March 7 at 5:30 p.m.
The Yakima River Canyon is a lifeline, linking the snow-capped Cascades to the Pacific Ocean. This tremendous energy source for animals and plants also benefits humans, who use river water to irrigate homes and businesses, and enjoy the Canyon’s many recreational opportunities. According to Jim Huckabay—writer, outdoor enthusiast, and emeritus Professor of Geography at CWU—the Yakima River Canyon is “the heart of our outdoor heritage.”
