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. Have a look at our Volunteer page and let us know how we can help you put your time and imagination to work for your community.
