Salmon Survival Panel
EXHIBITION:Honoring the Salish Sea
Amongst the people of the Northwest Coast the salmon provide a source of food as well as a large part of the mythology for the native people. For decades the Skokomish River’s natural waterways that allowed salmon to travel back and forth from spawning grounds to the sea were diverted by human intervention. In recent years environmental stewardship lead by tribal efforts has created new salmon runs through the Skokomish and helped to restore the flow of salmon from the mountains to the sea ensuring their survival for generations to come.
