A Personal Note

This past week I was elected to the Board of Directors of the Pacific Northwest Salmon Center.
"Our mission is to establish and conduct a research and learning center which will enhance public knowledge and appreciation for the values of Wild Salmon and related ecosystem health. The Preservation of Wild Salmon is directly linked to the preservation of other life and ecosystems. The Salmon Center will promote public knowledge and enhance appreciation for the value of Wild Salmon. The Center will facilitate a better understanding of ecosystem health through leading-edge research, interactive education, accessible information, unique displays, environmental seminars, and our annual Wild Salmon Hall of Fame celebration. Our 90 acre location is in Belfair, Washington, "where Hood Canal begins". As part of our hands on learning experiences we will be naturally treating stormwater from the Belfair Urban Growth Area, and returning 45 acres of hay fields to the orginal state of salt and freshwater marshes. Come learn with us!"
