By Bruce A. Smith

Our friends in Eatonville have sent the Mountain News-WA the following announcement regarding the fourth annual salmon festival to celebrate local salmon recovery projects, such as Ohop Creek:

Come Celebrate Salmon at the Eatonville Salmon Fest, Saturday, October 15

The fourth annual Eatonville Salmon Fest will celebrate community support for salmon recovery on Saturday, October 15th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Nisqually River Council, Nisqually Indian Tribe and the Town of Eatonville are hosting the celebration that will feature a number of family-friendly activities, music, food vendors, and a self-guided tour to the Mashel River. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own t-shirt to make their own salmon print.

Over the past 10 years, dozens of salmon restoration and protection projects have been accomplished around Eatonville. “The Eatonville community is a great example of what can be accomplished in restoring and protecting salmon on a local scaled,” said Justin Hall, executive director of the Nisqually River Foundation.
