The Tour

Musician and environmental educator Dana Lyons tours the greater Salish Sea region traveling from as far north as Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii down to the Columbia River Gorge in the south. Dana sings and raises awareness about the proposed radical increase of oil, coal, and natural gas export through the Salish Sea, and the threat posed to the Salish Sea’s marine environment, our regional economy, and to us all.

Learn how the people of British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon are working to stop highly explosive oil trains, tar sands pipelines, toxic coal trains, and dangerous LNG liquid natural gas export, and what you can do to help.
