Students design for Snake River waterfront

Washington State University landscape architecture students have developed designs for the Lower Snake River waterfront.

They will present their work on May 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Lewiston Library, 411 D Street in Lewiston. Students’ work will be exhibited at the Lewiston Library for two months.

As part of the semester-long, service-learning course, the third-year students researched and analyzed the waterfront. Their projects were guided by stories and ecologies of the regional landscape.

The students interacted with multiple individuals and organizations throughout the semester to develop their design ideas. This included Save our Wild Salmon, the Nez Perce Tribe, the City of Lewiston, Port of Whitman County, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Pacific Northwest Farmers Co-op, Lewiston residents, a fourth generation wheat farmer, WSU and University of Idaho faculty specializing in riparian and salmon ecology, and a watershed restoration specialist.
