Pacific Northwest Salmon Center
The Pacific Northwest Salmon Center strives to connect landscape, citizens, visitors, and wildlife through collaborative salmon restoration activities, and sustainable farming practices. We offer many opportunities for environmental educational to the general public and K-12 school children. Examples include 4-H club, Art Camp, Salmon Camp, Weaving Wisdom, Green Stem, and Cultivation Workshops. We have many volunteer options such as organic gardening, animal husbandry, scientific sampling, knotweed eradication and environmental education.
We often work with Governmental Agencies such as the US Fish and Wildlife, Washington State Fish and Wildlife, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) with our Steelhead research project in the Union, Dewatto, Little Quilcene and Tahuya Rivers. We also participate and lead on additional habitat projects such as the Knotweed Control Project, and the Union River Estuary Restoration. With the help of our donors, volunteers, and Staff, we participate in habitat restoration projects in all areas of the Hood Canal Watershed. These projects not only benefit resident salmon populations, but also support the ecological diversity of this beautiful and scenic natural community.
Our “Farm at the Water’s Edge” is certified by WSDA as Organic, and provides fresh vegetables and garden-based educational opportunities to the community and region. We practice sustainable agriculture to demonstrate how human, agricultural, and salmon ecosystems can coexist. We also offer a diverse array of certified organic vegetables, eggs, and flowers on a seasonal basis through our on-site Farm Stand. Proceeds from sales help cover costs of production and enable us to provide low-cost educational programs to all members of the community.
