On Wednesday, November 10, in conjunction with the conservation filmmakers of EP Films and Save Our Wild Salmon, KEEN Footwear will present a sneak preview of a new film about the one-of-a-kind migration of the Snake River’s endangered wild salmon.
The film, The Greatest Migration, follows the journey of these remarkable fish, who migrate farther inland and higher than any other salmon on Earth, making their way from the waters of southeast Alaska to the cold, wild rivers of Idaho’s Sawtooth Valley.

ONE OF A KIND
The wild salmon and steelhead of central Idaho, southeastern Washington, and northeastern Oregon are an incredible story of nature that began over 100 million years ago. When dinosaurs roamed the earth, salmon were swimming in our waters. The journey through time and the heroic lives of Snake River salmon make them one of a kind.
Salmon and steelhead are the only freshwater fish in the world that are born in a mountain lake or river, swim hundreds of miles downstream to live in the ocean, then turn and swim back upstream to reach the very place they were born.
Snake River salmon travel more than 900 miles inland and climb almost 7,000 feet to reach their spawning grounds – the highest salmon spawning habitats on earth, and the largest and wildest habitat left in the continental United States.
No other salmon species on this planet goes higher and farther.
