Watershed Education Tour 

Learn about the importance of a watershed through the life cycle of Pacific salmon and the species that rely on them. Discover how everything is connected within the watershed and understand the importance of healthy rivers. Engage in an aquatic invertebrate study and investigate the diversity of creatures that live in our streams. Determine how the diet of a salmon changes throughout its journey to the ocean. Wrap up your day in the park with a forest tour to learn about the value of native species in our ecosystems, and the lasting impact of invasive species.
