Democracy in Action Trip to the Yuba River

The Democracy in Action class took a trip to the Yuba River to learn about the conflict over the Yuba River dam.  Between rafting down the river to learn about the life cycle of salmon, hearing a Maidu tribesman’s personal connection to the river, and speaking with the owners of the dam, the class was able to experience first-hand all sides of the issue.  In this video, Haley Kardek ’14 documents their experience and captures several students’ responses to their experience.
