    This is a free family-oriented event with lots of activities or kids and families. The event is scheduled to coincide with fall salmon migration, so if we're lucky we'll get to see some, and we'll have creek side talks and tours led by fish biologists. There will be environmentally-themed games and activities for all ages, food, and music.


    This event is organized by the Puyallup River Watershed Council, Puyallup Historic Hatchery Foundation, and WRIA 10/12 Lead Entity.
