This year to ensure that we continue to follow health and safety guidelines Kitsap Salmon Tours will be going virtual, therefore we will not have docents out streamside. Instead of our annual Salmon Docent Training we will be hosting a Free Kitsap Salmon Webinar Series open to all who want to learn more about the iconic Pacific Northwest salmon.
