Salmon obstacle course! Watch out!

Let the games begin!

It was a sunny glorious winter day as we slithered and swam our way through a mock salmon obstacle course. Real salmon have to dodge eagles, bears, pollution, AND humans of course. So we set up some fisherman with foam noodle fishing poles and let them catch baby salmon as they swim upstream. We set up hoola hoops and cones to simulate all the ducking and dodging salmon do in water. We even had kids throw scarves at the fish, to simulates pollution.

Fishing!!!!!

Why all this play acting? We do this because it’s a fun & interactive way to learn about the trials & tribulations our baby Coho salmon will endure when they leave Orca and go to Lake Washington.
