Lake Stevens Salmon Fair


October 8, 2013

Make a difference and help your community restore salmon habitat.

Regional fisheries enhancement group, Sound Salmon Solutions and Adopt a Stream Foundation are putting on a Salmon Fair on Saturday, October 12, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on 124th Ave. NE alongside Catherine Creek in Lake Stevens.

Admission is free, no RSVP required.

The fair is being organized with the help of local community member Aaron Hoy and the Bridgeport at the Crossings Home Owners Association (

At the salmon fair attendees will have the opportunity to plant native trees and learn how they help salmon. Attendees will also learn how water quality parameters such as dissolved oxygen, phosphate, temperature and turbidity relate to salmon health.

Catherine Creek water will be tested to see how it measures up against the standards. Be sure to bring the whole family because there will be fun activities for kids too. Snacks, water, tools, gloves and water quality testing supplies will be provided. Attendees should dress for the weather.

Sound Salmon Solutions (SSS) is a local nonprofit whose mission is to restore healthy salmon runs in the Stillaguamish, Snohomish and Island County watersheds.

SSS is recognized by the WA Department of Fish and Wildlife as one of fourteen regional fishery enhancement groups across the state. SSS has been engaged in restoring salmon habitat and educating students about water quality issues and conservation efforts for 23 years.

Many folks know us by our former name; the Stilly Snohomish Fisheries Enhancement Task Force, or just “the Task Force”.
