Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery and Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park are welcoming salmon home to Issaquah Creek from noon to 5 p.m. today at Lake Sammamish State Park, 2000 N.W. Sammamish Road.
Visitors can learn about the two organizations as well as a number of other local groups focused on environmental stewardship.
Volunteer guides will explain the characteristics of the ideal creek habitat for salmon, identify the salmon species swimming in Issaquah Creek and describe the salmon lifecycle. The newly constructed boardwalk will be open for the public to explore the delta and lake shore at the mouth of Issaquah Creek.
Vehicle access to Lake Sammamish State Park requires a Discover Pass or a $10 daytime parking pass.
