Coho salmon are Spawning in Crystal Springs - and it's Time to Celebrate
The restoration of Crystal Springs Creek through Westmoreland Park and the long-awaited Nature Play Area, are now complete, and on October 25th these projects—and the return of salmon to the city—will be celebrated with a party in the park.
The Celebration will take place from 11a.m. to 4p.m. and will feature a salmon bake, lamprey tasters, tours, native games, a formal speaking program (from 11:30am-12:30), and a wide range of family-friendly activities – including Claudia Chinook, a 29-foot long, 14-foot tall, 2,800-pound educational salmon display.
And who knows, maybe you’ll even catch a glimpse of the two coho spotted in Crystal Springs just downstream of the Park this weekend! See if you can find them in the attached photo…for more information, take a look at the link from the Johnson Creek Watershed Council here.
