Bring family and friends to celebrate the return of salmon to Kitsap streams at these FREE events! There are many opportunities to join salmon experts and docents to witness the salmon lifecycle this fall

“Interest just always seems to be growing,” says Renee Johnson, Salmon Tours coordinator. “A lot of people return every year, but we always see people who are doing it for the first time. They’re amazed they can see so many salmon right from where they’re standing.”

Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Some sites involve a hike to the stream.
