Water flows downhill - what you do in your yard affects salmon in Lake Forest Park, Lake Washington and Puget Sound

Friday, March 15, 2019

Retired Shoreline teacher Jim Siscel helps Ridgecrest
students hatch fingerling salmon from eggs in their
classroom, then release them in LFP streams
Groups and individuals in Lake Forest Park have been working for years to restore the native kokanee salmon runs in LFP streams.

Find out how what you do in Shoreline helps or hinders that process.

Dr. Jeffrey Jensen of the Lake Forest Park Streamkeepers will talk about kokanee from an historical perspective (once prominent in the basin), what they are doing downstream of us in LFP, and ways in which general watershed management (including rain gardens and other flood control) can help.
