Register Now for Welcome the Salmon Home!

Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday?

Come to Westwind’s Salmon River waterfront on September 9th, 2018 to celebrate the return of Chinook and Coho salmon after their multi-year lives in deep waters along the Northwest Pacific Coast. Celebrate and learn more about salmon’s key role in upholding biodiversity and how this connects with Westwind’s mission of conservation, education, and sustainability.

Lots of fun and learn about Salmon!

Spend the afternoon at Westwind and enjoy traditional Japanese fish printing (Gyotaku), boat/canoe tours of the Salmon River estuary, citizen science demonstrations, and learning about the Salmon cycle. We will celebrate the cultural and culinary importance of Salmon with a traditional open fired salmon bake, with tastings and other refreshments. Hikes and tours of Westwind’s ocean-front camp will also be available.
