2019 Salmon Celebration

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, 11/24 from 11am until 2pm, all ages are invited to Carkeek Park for activities to welcome the salmon home. Celebrate with food (donuts, coffee, cider, and mandarin oranges), music, an appearance by Bert the Salmon, Salmon Jeopardy, a kid-friendly salmon scavenger hunt through the park, a salmon dissection and other information tables. Volunteer Salmon Stewards and CWCAP volunteers will be on hand to answer questions.

Help Collect Water Samples in Our Park

World Water Day 2019

We invite you to join us in celebration of the 47th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act and the  World Water Monitoring Challenge by helping collect Water Samples in our park!

When: Saturday October 19th                  Time: 10:00 AM -12:00 PM

Work with other volunteers to collect water samples at multiple sites throughout the park. After a brief tutorial, each team will be sent to a collection site to obtain a sample. After the sample has been obtained, we will perform water temperature, turbidity, pH, and dissolved oxygen tests with the kits that are provided. This is a great opportunity to interact with your local community and be an important part of the success of our beautiful park. It’s also an opportunity to see the start of the salmon returning to our creek.

Ages 8-Adult are welcome to participate in this event. It’s a great way to spend a couple hours with your family and friends and learn more about the importance of the water we all depend on.
