In Tidepool today, the Salem Statesmen Journal reports on new efforts to clean up the Willamette—it’s ranked no. 3 in American Rivers’ annual endangered rivers report. (The Boise River is at no. 6, which I picked up from the Idaho Statesman in yesterday’s Tidepool.) Meanwhile, other papers report on a new salmon lawsuit brewing in polluted Puget Sound. And a new U.S. Census report triggers a spate of stories around migration trends and unaffordable housing in the region and beyond.
More on Tidepool’s front page: Interested in following the alliance between environmental groups and sportsmen, which I featured in yesterday’s Tidepool? There’s a Wyoming-focused story in USA Today–with a great lede.
And if you’re looking for a window onto spring from your cubicle walls: The Globe and Mail reports on a Hornby Island site that has been webcasting an eagle’s nest. It’s wildly popular. Actually, my toddler and I have been tuning in from time to time over the past month, as we haven’t made it out of the city in too long. (I thank my Gulf-Island-hopping archaeologist-husband, who brought it to my attention.) The eggs are expected to hatch around April 25.
