The community is invited to the the Normandy Park Cove salmon rearing pond on Sunday March 15, from 1pm to 3pm. Volunteers from the local Duwamish-Green Chapter of Trout Unlimited will bring coolers full of tiny coho salmon from their hatchery to the Cove pond.
Children and adults are encouraged to attend to release these salmon fry that will live in the pond and stream for a year, then migrate to Puget Sound and the ocean. Eventually these little fish will return as adults to spawn in the local creeks.
Participants will be provided with a small plastic cups containing salmon fry for planting in the pond. For safety around the water, all children must be accompanied by and adult. We recommend parking at the Cove Beach parking lot. The fish coolers will be located at the edge of the pond.
