SEALASKA Middle and High School Day Campers Help With Imprint System Maintenance

SEALASKA in partnership with the University of Washington brought together 14 middle and high school summer day campers for activities at Carkeek Park.

They took time on July 27 to help CWCAP volunteers with important maintenance on the Imprint Pond System. This great bunch of kids learned about the history of salmon in Carkeek Park and the specific activities that make it possible for salmon to return to the Piper’s Creek Watershed every year. Then they got to work maintaining sedimentation tanks, measuring system water flow rates, and removing debris from around some 200 feet of intake pipe.

The day campers helped submerge a video camera and record fascinating footage of a day in the life of resident coastal cutthroat trout after spotting juvenile trout in a pool in Mohlendorph Creek.

Spring Salmon Releases at Carkeek Park

The salmon recently released into Venema Creek are on their way to big things. Thanks to the generous support of the Suquamish Tribe, CWCAP volunteers released a total of about 98,000 Chum salmon fry this Spring into Venema Creek and by now they are on their way to the Pacific Ocean.

Before the adult Chum salmon return this Fall from their far-off journey that began 3 to 5 years ago, there is much to do. Please check back soon to see how you can get involved in Carkeek Park.
