Salmon Significance: The Story of Salmon in Donkey Creek

From the first Native American community to the Gig Harbor of today, the waters of Austin Estuary and Donkey Creek have been a significant site in our local ecology, especially for the chum salmon that frequent them. On November 18th from 1:00-2:00pm, join Harbor History Museum for a special program with Harbor WildWatch’s Science Specialist, Stena Troyer. Stena will walk guests through the history of Austin Estuary and Donkey Creek Park, the impact of the 2013 Donkey Creek Restoration Project, and the development of Harbor WildWatch’s salmon monitoring program.

This event is $2 for members of Harbor History Museum and Harbor WildWatch and $5 for non-members. To reserve your seat, please contact Elizabeth Langford, Education Coordinator, at or 253-858-6722 ext. 6.
