Fall is here, and salmon are returning to streams and rivers around Puget Sound. Watch for these natural beauties at viewing sites listed here – and cheer them on if you see them!

See hundreds of returning chum and coho make their way into Piper’s Creek at Carkeek Park throughout November and December. On weekends during the return, Salmon Stewards greet guests by the creek to explain the salmon’s life cycle, habitat, and human influence on both.

Confirm and report salmon sightings, and interact with community members on Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/3fe6a78 or www.carkeekpark.org.
