Salmon Center on Hood Canal "The original design called for a unique salmon-spawning aquarium with below-ground viewing areas, laboratories, a theater and Native American cultural exhibits. Together, the features would create a regional tourist destination. Part of the plan is rehabilitation of Sweetwater Creek. Critics say the size and location as first conceived is a concern. All of the facilities were planned to be adjacent to or across Highway 3 from Belfair Elementary School and next door to the 135-acre Mary E. Theler wetlands."
