Abstract or Summary
  • “The Columbia River Watershed is one of the most beautiful places on God’s Earth. Its mountains and valleys, forests and meadows, rivers and deserts speak of the presence of their Creator. Its farms and fisheries, communities and cities, businesses and industries reveal the varied ways in which people of the region worked with Earth’s beauty and bounty to derive their livelihood from the land and water.” Thus begins “The Columbia River Watershed: Realities and Possibilities—A Reflection in Preparation for a Pastoral Letter,” by the Catholic Bishops of the Pacific Northwest and southeastern British Columbia. Dioceses touched by the river and its tributaries include Nelson in British Columbia (a third of the river is in Canada), Helena, Boise, Spokane, Yakima, Seattle, Baker and Portland. I serve on our project steering committee, which includes representatives from all of these dioceses and from Catholic universities and colleges in the region. A learning spirit has been part of a process that began in November 1997 at the University of Portland with the first of many listening sessions. We heard from scientists, historians, farmworkers, farmers, economists, environmentalists, governmental officials, ecumenical leaders, business agents, irrigators, tribal leaders, and folks from many other walks of life. At different locations throughout a vast region which includes twelve hundred miles of the great river, the thousands of miles of its tributaries, and the 259,000 square miles of its extensive area, Bishop Skylstad of Spokane (chair of the project) and steering committee members looked at the watershed and listened.
