The Illinois Valley Watershed Council has partnered with Bridgeview Winery to save the salmon population with the Alevin Wine initiative.
In some parts of the country, the salmon population has dropped by more than 95% over the course of a few decades. Countless individuals and organizations are racing against time to save the species that has been a vital part of healthy ecosystems, food chains and ways of life for generations.
The entire Illinois River Basin is a crucial refuge for wild coho and chinook salmon. Not only is it one of the country’s most biologically diverse river valleys, it’s also one of the few places left where you can witness the earliest phase of a salmon’s life cycle.
This is why we’ve hatched a plan to support salmon. One dollar from every purchase of Alevin will be divided among the Illinois Valley Watershed Council, as well as a carefully chosen regional aquatic environmental cause. Partnerships like these help to implement sustainable solutions that support our native rivers and streams!
