Salmon are beginning to return to Carkeek Park! The first sighting was on Saturday, October 27, 2018. This was just one fish sighted in the wetlands about 200 feet upstream from the railroad culvert in Piper’s Creek. Since Saturday, a few more Chum and Coho salmon have been spotted. Students on fields trips to Carkeek Park on Monday, October 29, 2018 from St. George and Thornton Creek Elementary Schools were able to observe a few early Coho salmon during one of their three educational activities, the Interpretive Creek Walk. These are 2 of more than 30 schools participating in this fall’s Salmon Search program at Carkeek Park.
