Coming January 10
Sense of Place lecture series – Hanford: Our River Runs Through it
The Pacific Northwest is home to the United States’ most contaminated place, the Hanford Nuclear Site. Join Gorge Owned for a panel discussion that will explore the history of Hanford’s plutonium production, the contamination that persists as a result, and the importance of the last free-flowing stretch of the Columbia River known as the Hanford Reach.
The panel will include:
- Dirk Dunning, a recently retired Hanford expert from the Oregon Department of Energy
- Dan Serres, Conservation Director of Columbia Riverkeeper
- Damon Motz-Storey, Clean Energy Organizer for Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility.
Together the panelists will explore some of the major challenges that remain at Hanford and answer audience questions about the Hanford site.
