A river and the Endangered Species Act

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that the zU.S. Forest Service’s policies permitting gold mining in rivers in national forests violated the Endangered Species Act. This should have ramifications, for example, on the Boise River as it meanders above, below and through the town of Idaho City north of Boise, Idaho (the  Boise National Forest). And that stretch of the river was blitzed more than a century ago with a dredging machine. You can read about the Karuk Tribe of northern California and its ties to the Coho Salmon right here. Have at it, buckaroos.
