IRJ guide Libby Tobey kayaked over 1,000 miles from the sources of the Main, Middle, and South Forks of the Salmon, to the Snake and Columbia rivers and out to the Pacific Ocean. Her source-to-sea journey intended to highlight the critical state of Idaho’s salmon populations and two big opportunities to protect them: removing the four Lower Snake River dams and preventing the construction of the Stibnite Gold Project.
Ask any guests about Libby and you are met with big grins and words like patient, professional, fun, and teacher. She considers guiding to be as much about teaching as it is anything else, and her knowledge of water policy and Salmon migration is immensely appreciated by guests and guides alike. To learn about the latest news on the four Lower Snake River dams you can read her Salmon blog post.
