South Whidbey Schools Salmon Release

Last Spring, South Whidbey 5th Graders released Coho Salmon Fry, that they had raised themselves, into Maxwelton Creek. This program, led by Whidbey Watershed Stewards, is in its 4th year of mentoring young "Salmon Ambassadors" to monitor and care for juvenile salmon, in hopes to restore our local salmon population. Cumulating this fall, when they hope to have the first salmon swim back upstream!
