Hyde Creek Watershed Society Salmon Festival
Celebrate and witness the return of thousands of salmon back to their birthplace to lay and fertilize their eggs on Sunday November 18th from 11am-3pm. Spawning time is the end of these Coho & Chum salmon’s lifespan and the beginning of the next generation. This FREE family event provides visitors of all ages the opportunity to observe salmon up close and learn about their life cycle through educational displays, salmon dissections and in-stream demonstrations. Come out for a day of exploring, experiencing and learning about the salmon and wildlife in a fish-bearing watershed. See our Festival Page under News & Events.
