When coming to view the fish please remain on the designated trails. This is to prevent damage to the river banks creating erosion and harm to the surrounding riparian area.

Salmon Society Educational Program a Success!

Last fall, the Adams River Salmon Society contracted Celia Nord to manage an interpretive program for October during the salmon run and apply for funding to support an educational program for this year. Celia is an archaeologist, as well as museum archivist and curator. Plus, she is very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna.  We were very pleased with the results! Celia worked with numerous school groups and naturalist clubs during October. Also, during the Thanksgiving weekend she provided interpretive services for 244 people. As well, she set up some exhibits in the Society’s Interpretive cabin, which was visited by 766 people over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Here is a photo of Celia in action:
